Nightguards in Libertyville, IL
Do you wake up with a dull headache or soreness in your jaw? If so you may be grinding your teeth or clenching your jaws in your sleep, a condition known as Bruxism. Teeth grinding can be brought on by many factors, including stress and anxiety, an abnormal bite, crooked teeth, or by sleep disorders. If you suffer from Bruxism, your dentist may recommend a nightguard to protect your teeth while you sleep.
Nightguards act as a barrier between your upper and lower jaws to help prevent the involuntary grinding. Your dentist can recommend a nightguard that best fits your needs as well as answer any questions that you may have about sleeping with a nightguard in place.
If you think that you may suffer from Bruxism, stop in and visit our office today. Our staff will help you identify and take care of the problem so that you can get a restful night’s sleep.
