Do you ever grind your teeth? Did you know that teeth grinding has very harmful effects on your teeth and jaws? Known as bruxism, teeth grinding transforms how you bite your food and completely damages your oral health. You may wonder, why does teeth grinding have such a severe effect? Teeth grinding is disastrous because it causes abrasion to the chewing surfaces of your teeth. This can lead to premature aging and loss of healthy teeth, allowing your teeth to be vulnerable to major problems such as hypersensitivity. Also, teeth grinding can lead to chronic jaw, oral, and facial pain.
Good news! Bruxism is treatable. There are many options for treatments that prevent the damage to teeth and mitigate the pain. Night guards and therapeutic sprints are two of these options. The great thing about night guards and therapeutic sprints is that they are worn while you sleep. Thus, they do not cause any discomfort to you during the day while you are out and about. They are very easy to use and have proven to be very effective.
