Our skillful Gladstone dentists are trained to fit you with custom mouthguards and nightguards, which are guaranteed to fit comfortably and prevent you from clenching and grinding your teeth in your sleep. It has been estimated that as many as 20% of adults in the U.S. grind their teeth involuntarily.
The main factor in tooth grinding is stress, and clenching and grinding your teeth can have some serious health consequences, and not just for your oral health. It wears down and damages your teeth, and it also causes soreness in the jaw, neck and face. Some people have even developed mild to severe headaches and earaches because of tooth grinding.
Having a nightguard customized for you typically only takes two visits. Our dentist will take some measurements and then will send the info to a special lab where they will create a custom nightguard that is uniquely suited to protect your teeth. We also offer custom athletic mouth guards for our patients who participate in physical sports.
