Benefits Of Using Mouthguards For Teeth Grinding

Posted on 7/24/2023 by Artistic Smiles
Benefits Of Using Mouthguards For Teeth Grinding Teeth grinding does not just happen at night but also during the day. The effect of teeth grinding in the night is more conspicuous than in the day. Which leads to broken or chipped teeth, neck and jaw, and migraine pain. Here we explore how the use of mouthguards can help you deal with bruxism.

Protecting The Teeth From Injury

A mouthguard is a device that serves as a barrier or cushion between the lower and upper teeth. That way during the involuntary clenching and grinding the teeth are not able to come into contact with each other. As such not only do you safeguard against teeth chipping and fracturing, but you also guarantee the safety of the jaw and gums. A mouthguard will absorb all the force of grinding and avert any damage.

Facilitating Quality Sleep

Teeth grinding is most often involuntary. With the use of mouthguards, you get to enjoy quality uninterrupted sleep through the night. One of the effects of teeth grinding is interrupted sleep. Most times you wake up feeling so tired and with mild to severe migraines. Optimal functioning throughout the day becomes inhibited and that can result in low productivity. Utilizing mouthguards, you will not have to suffer the effects of jaw clenching.


Besides the initial payment of procuring a mouthguard, in the long run, it will save you so much money. You will not have to go through expensive dental procedures cush as fillings, root canals, jaw alignments, and many other conditions brought about by bruxism. Mouthguards are extremely easy to use. Depending on the type, mouthguards are custom-made to comfortably fit your teeth. Cleaning and maintenance are also easy and manageable. In case they become worn out or damaged, you can replace them at any pharmacy or medical facility. Learn more about mouthguards and general dental care tips on all our social media handles.
