Bruxism is one of the main issues in necessary in educating patients about their oral health. There are two main types of bruxism: that which occurs during sleep sleep bruxism which happens during sleep and awake bruxism which occurs during wakefulness.

 

Damage to the teeth may be similar in both types, but the symptoms of sleep bruxism are usually worst upon waking and improve during the course of the day, and the symptoms of awake bruxism may not be present at all upon waking, and then worsen over the day. The causes of bruxism are not completely understood, but probably involve multiple factors. A nightguard is a proactive step to protect your existing healthy teeth.*

 

A clear, thin removable device, your custom-made bite splint is worn over your lower or upper teeth as you sleep. Studies suggest those who grind and clench their teeth may experience up to 80 times the normal tooth wear per day compared to those who do not. The good news is that a simple bite splint can offset the effects of this often-subconscious habit while protecting your teeth from daily wear and tear.

 

At Affinity Dental Group we fabricate custom night guards to protect your bite.

An impression is taken from upper and lower teeth and a lab-fabricated customized nightguard is fabricated.

 

Sports guards are fabriated to give proper support to individuals during contact sports and related activities in which excessive damage can cause tooth or joint damage. The mouth guard or sport guard should fit properly without adjustment but proper periodic adjustments are needed. Follow up appointments are given to ensure proper.
