Using Mouth Guards at night for Tooth Grinders

It’s estimated that close to 20% of adults suffer from the negative effects of grinding and clenching their teeth, often called bruxing. The main reason people clench and grind their teeth is due to stress. Clenching and grinding not only causes excessive wear on your teeth, but the activity can also cause your facial and neck muscles to become sore.

At Stonegate Meadows Dentistry of Colorado, our experienced dentist can fit you with night guards — plastic mouthpieces that fit over your upper and lower teeth — to lessen the damaging effects of clenching or grinding your teeth. Night guards can also correct your bite by placing your teeth in their correct position.
