What Is Sleep Bruxism?

Bruxism is the medical term used to describe excessive grinding or clenching of your teeth. One might not be aware of this habit until symptoms start to cause problems. Nightguards were created specifically to treat nocturnal bruxism. Nightguards are soft or  firm acrylic pieces that cover the top or bottom row of teeth. They protect your teeth from the force of clenching and stop them from grinding together, avoiding headaches, broken teeth or swollen gums.

Common Signs of Sleep Bruxism

Talk to your dentist about the following signs and symptoms:

  • Chipped or worn teeth
  • Waking up with headaches
  • Increasing spaces between the teeth.
  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder—inflammation of the jaw due to clenching
  • Chronic grinding 

Are you or your child into sports?

A custom mouthguard should be made if you or your child intends to participate in sports. Mouthguards are made specifically to guard against injury from trauma sustained during an activity or sport.

Custom mouthguards are smooth and comfortable to wear. They stay firmly in place on your teeth and are simple to put in and take out because they were made specifically for you. Compared to mouthguards purchased over the counter, they offer more protection and are more comfortable.

Went in, just today, for a scheduled cleaning and consultation with Dr Nadia Awais for invisalign. The staff at McArthur Dental is always so wonderful, helpful and attentive. Even with Covid, the officed and space is so clean and well organized. I truly felt safe and well taken care of. A special thanks to Renata, who always has a smile on her face and manages to answer all of my questions. And a huge thank you to Dr Awais who always makes me feel comfortable, explains everything in detail and shares her knowledge with me. You truly are an incredible dentist who puts her patients first, above all else! Highly recommend McArthur Dental to everyone!

Dr. Nadia Awais is great! I took all the family with her and the experience was really pleasant. Previously my kids had been hesitant to go to the dentist, but with Nadia it was different. She had a great approach to make them at ease, and I can tell that the fear to dentist is gone now.
