Bruxism is the medical term for grinding the teeth and clenching the jaw. People sometimes grind their teeth without it causing any symptoms or problems. But regular, persistent teeth grinding can cause jaw pain and discomfort and wear down your teeth. It can also cause headaches and earache.
Bruxism is easy to treat in the early stages. If it is get diagnosed in the early stages, then there should be elimination of the cause and some behaviour modification in order to treat Bruxism.
In later on stages, to treat the Bruxism there is necessity of the use of Night Guards. With the use of Night Guards one can feel some disturbance in his/her sound sleep but soon one can get the habit of wearing this.
Night Guards does not have the ability to eliminate the habit of Bruxism but this can reduce the worst changes that come in light with the habit of Bruxism.
Night Guards are designed so that it can prevent the coming of upper and lower teeth together and thus also prevent the grinding process to occur.
But in choosing the Night Guards one can be conscious about the proper fit of these. These Night Guards are designed so as these covers the chewing surfaces of the teeth to eliminate the habit of Bruxism.
