Do you wake up with jaw pain and headache? This maybe a sign of grinding, clenching your teeth while asleep. Studies have shown that night time grinding can occur as often as 40 minutes for every hour of sleep producing up to 250 pounds of force per square inch. All those teeth grinders out there are prone to lose two millimeters of enamel erosion by their mid twenties. Other implications of teeth grinding are facial pain, disorders that occur in the temporomandibular joints, front teeth are worn down and uneven, gum recession, loose tooth and severe headache and aching of jaws due to over use of muscles.
The causes of these are mainly stress, increased anxiety or frustration. It also depends on personality of a person- who is aggressive, competitive can increase grinding or clenching.
Night Guards fit between your upper and lower molars to re-establish your natural freeway space. You may breathe easily and the guard protects your teeth from gnawing against each other. This also helps to eliminate headaches and jaw pain.
