Are you in need of 78665 night guards?
According to the American Sleep Association, bruxism, or the chronic grinding of teeth, affects at least 10% of the nation. Sometimes going undetected during sleep, bruxism can lead to headaches, earaches, and toothaches, not to mention wearing or loosening of teeth, and even damage to restorations in the mouth. As an experienced dentist, the highly-skilled professionals at Paloma Vista Dental are keen on detecting the signs and symptoms of bruxism and can thoroughly evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and jaws. Providing an expansive range of essential dental services, from preventive, restorative, and emergency care, to the treatment of TMJ, sleep apnea, and some of the most stunning cosmetic options for your smile, at Paloma Vista Dental, they’re well prepared to address the dental needs of your entire family. Oftentimes, bruxism can be effectively treated with a custom set of Round Rock, TX 78665 night guards.
Bruxism most typically occurs during sleep, but it can also happen during the day. Although it is believed that stress and anxiety are common causes of bruxism, no one quite knows for certain why bruxism occurs, nor how to completely cure the habit. With a customized pair of Round Rock, TX 78665 night guards, your dentist can treat your grinding habit by comfortably keeping your jaws slightly apart during sleep hours. Custom fabricated from a soft material, your night guard is designed to fit ideally over the contours of your teeth, for the most comfortable fit. If you believe you may be experiencing bruxism, it’s essential to see your dentist for a checkup early on. In cases where patients have abnormal bites, or unusually high surfaces to the teeth, additional wear and strain to the jaws and facial muscles can occur.
