Do You Need a Mouth Guard to Prevent Damage from Teeth Grinding?

According to the National Sleep Foundation, bruxism (the medical term for teeth grinding) currently affects 8% of the adults in the U.S. Whether your grinding has been a lifelong habit or one that you recently discovered, it can be hard to tell whether it’s a serious issue or not, and if it’s time for you to consider purchasing a quality and affordable mouth guard from Dental Duty.

teethFollowing are some of the signs that might indicate you need a mouth guard:

You wake up to chipped teeth - Chipped teeth not only mean that it's time to schedule an appointment with your dentist office, but also that your teeth grinding issue has taken a more serious turn and that it's time for a mouth guard.

You have a headache when you wake up - Are you consistently waking up with a headache after a full night of rest? This may be a sign that you are grinding your teeth and/or your teeth grinding is becoming more persistent and severe.

You experience persistent and chronic grinding all of the time - If you grind your teeth at work because of stress, it’s a possibility that you may be grinding your teeth at night as well. While a mouth guard won’t be able to prohibit you from clenching your jaw and thus grinding your teeth at work, it will minimize the damage you see if you're grinding your teeth at night. While teeth grinding is a common serious issue, that doesn’t mean you have to suffer.
