Find out if you grind your teeth while sleeping

Ask your roommates or family members if you have the habit of grinding your teeth at night. People who sleep close to you will know, as the noise of grinding teeth can be heard at night when everything else is silent. Apart from this, there could be other signs like loosening of the teeth, tooth pain and tooth fractures that indicate the existence of this habit. You could also experience soreness in the jaw and dull headaches.

Why choose Northeast Dental Center for Night Guards?

Night Guards are available over the counter, but most dentists would advise against it, as they can be very uncomfortable since they do not fit you perfectly. As a result, most people who opt for over the counter night guards end up not using them due to the discomfort caused during sleeping and the fact that they are unattractive.

It is best to visit a professional dentist if you want to start using a night guard. When you visit Northeast Dental Center for a night guard, we first examine your teeth to look for any damage caused by grinding. This can help discover the pattern of grinding. Depending upon which teeth are affected, you can either be given a full night guard or a smaller one that would cover your front teeth.

Custom night guards are made by taking an impression of your mouth in order to ensure that they fit perfectly and do not come off at night. The material used is strong and resistant to tearing, and the night guards can even be made to look attractive.

The Consequences of Not Wearing a Night Guard

Constant grinding can cause teeth to become worn and sensitive. They may even crackdown and fracture, giving you severe toothaches. The gums may start receding, which can eventually lead to tooth loss. Additionally, this is also a causal factor for terrible body pains and migraines.

Kehinde B.

Best dental place ever!!. Everyone in there are very nice and friendly. And they do the dental job very comfortable. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Alexis M.

Everyone was polite and professional. Office and the rooms were clean and well kept. Equipment was up to date and in very good shape. Dr. Oleg Amayev was well spoken and to-the-point without being curt. My teeth look/feel great after the cleaning. I had a great dental experience in no longer than an hour after a long day of work. I’ll be going back in 6 months.

Jamil S.

Since I have been a patient of Dr. Oleg he has saved my teeth and has been very compassionate and engaged in my oral health. This line of work is really the office passion. Lastly, the reminders through text and phone calls are the greatest because I always remember when my next appointment is even if I lose my train of thought of when it is.
