During this season, it’s so fun to imaginatively consider all that’s going on in your house at night while you’re sleeping. Sugar Plum Fairies may be dancing in your head. Santa may be placing hefty gifts under your tree, and your elf on your shelf may be up to all kinds of good fun.
Did you ever consider that some not-so-good things could be going on in your home while you sleep as well? One sleep-time habit that you or a family member could be unknowingly engaged in at night is bruxism. Bruxism is another word from teeth grinding.
Bruxism can be caused by a variety of reasons:
- Abnormal bites
- Missing teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Sleep Apnea
This nighttime habit could be causing your daytime aches and pains. Bruxism can damage your teeth, cause pain and stiffness in your jaw, neck, head and shoulders. It can cause unwanted wear on your tooth enamel.
At Vida Dental we offer treatment for patients that suffer from bruxism. A custom-fitted nightguard can help provide relief from your harmful nighttime habit. Every nightguard is made specifically for you! It is easy to insert and remove and can actually improve the quality of your sleep at night.
If you or a loved one is suffering from bruxism, book your appointment with Vida Dental today, so we can get you on the road to a quiet and peaceful night’s sleep with a nightguard.
