You May Need a Mouth Guard to Get Better Sleep


Posted on 9/20/2019 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
You May Need a Mouth Guard to Get Better SleepThose that grind or clench their jaws at night when they sleep may have more jaw and mouth pain than those that do not. Due to this, many are recommended by our dental professionals to wear a mouth guard. Sometimes, people worry that they will not be able to sleep properly with a mouth guard.

In fact, once they try it for a few nights, most realize they are actually getting better, deeper sleep and waking up feeling far more rested.

Benefits of Using a Mouth Guard

There are numerous benefits of using a mouth guard when you sleep. If you grind or clench your teeth, this can cause many problems. It might even cause you to wake up in the middle of the night. If this is the case, it is important to speak with our office today to find out if we can provide you with a mouth guard to help you get better sleep and protect your teeth from wear.

Mouth guards have long been a way to protect your teeth. Many people that have broken their teeth at night or harmed their jaw because of clenching find themselves getting more benefits from the use of the mouth guard that now protects the teeth. Plus, some struggle with apnea, where their jaw needs to be in a specific position to breathe properly while they sleep. This helps them get deeper, more restful sleep, too.

Our office can provide a customized, specialized mouth guard that is made to protect your teeth at night and snugly fits in the places it should. This is important for better sleeping, and for further protection.

Speak with us today right here at our office to get the help you need for your mouth and the trauma you may experience from a lack of solid sleep. We can provide the help that is required to provide you with better overall dental health and wellness.
