Find Relief for Teeth Grinding
Bruxism is a common condition that causes individuals to excessively grind and clench their teeth while sleeping. Teeth grinding can cause damaging effects on the tooth enamel, increase dental sensitivity, and chip or flatten the teeth. Individuals who struggle with stress or anxiety may also be prone to clench and grind.
Fortunately, our experienced Calgary dentists can help treat your bruxism and protect your teeth from further damage. Discover how our customized night guards will help you get a better night’s sleep⎼free of clenching and grinding.
Creating a Personalized Treatment
During your consultation, Dr. Adatia will assess your symptoms and examine your oral health to create your personalized treatment plan. She’ll also take impressions of your mouth to ensure your night guard fits comfortably and sits precisely over your teeth.
Similar to a mouth guard, a night guard provides a physical barrier between your top and bottom teeth while you sleep. This prevents your teeth from grinding and ultimately, damaging your smile and overall well-being. Made of durable material, our custom night guards are designed to last up to 10 years, offering you a long-term solution for bruxism.
Alternative Solutions for Bruxism
In addition to wearing a night guard, Dr. Adatia will likely recommend additional solutions to help relieve stress and prevent grinding. Certain lifestyle changes and methods may include:
- Relaxing your mouth
- Massaging your jaw
- Refraining from chewing gum or biting on objects
- Avoiding alcohol and caffeine
- Taking a warm bath before bed
