Did you know 15% of the population will clench or grind their teeth at night? This condition—called bruxism—often goes undetected until a family member hears grinding sounds when you are sleeping, or your dentist notices the signs of bruxism. When diagnosed early, bruxism may be treated with a simple appliance; Midpark Dental is pleased to offer South Calgary Night Guards!
At Midpark Dental, we have two types of mouth guards available. We have both hard and soft mouth guards. Which one you need, all depends on your specific needs. Hard mouth guards are used to treat conditions such as bruxism or teeth grinding. While south mouth guards are used by those playing sports or who have teeth clenching habits.
If you suffer from bruxism, you may experience headaches, jaw pain, earaches, sensitive teeth, chipped teeth, broken fillings, eroded gums and the eventual loss of supporting bone.
After an extensive examination and patient history, we will formulate a plan that is aimed to help resolve bruxism issues. At Midpark Dental, our office can help to evaluate your symptoms, devise a treatment plan, and work with you to relieve the discomfort of bruxism.
At Midpark Dental, we recommend custom Mouth Guards. Custom Night Guards are made to precisely fit your teeth making them the most comfortable option for sleeping.
