Do you wake up with sore jaw muscles or headaches? You may be one of many people who grind their teeth while they sleep. Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can contribute to significant tooth damage and lead to other health issues. Fortunately, occlusal guard (also known as ‘night guard’) can help alleviate the symptoms of bruxism and protect your teeth.
Occlusal guards are custom-made dental appliances that are worn while sleeping. They act as a barrier between the upper and lower teeth, preventing them from coming into contact and reducing the force of grinding. This can help alleviate symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and tooth sensitivity. The night guards can also protect your teeth from damage caused by grinding, such as chips, fractures, and wear.
At our dental practice, we offer night guards that are made specifically for your mouth. Our team will take impressions of your teeth to ensure a perfect fit and maximum comfort. We use high-quality materials to ensure that your night guard is durable and long-lasting.
Don’t let bruxism damage your teeth and disrupt your sleep. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how night guards can help you sleep better and protect your teeth. Our team at On Point Dental is here to help you achieve optimal oral health and comfort.
Regular dental cleanings are an essential part of maintaining good oral health. Dental cleanings, also known as prophylaxis or a prophy, involve the removal of plaque, tartar, and other debris from teeth and gums. Here are some reasons why dental cleanings are so important:
Prevention of tooth decay and gum disease: Plaque buildup can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, which can cause pain, inflammation, and tooth loss. Regular cleanings can help prevent these problems before they become more serious.
Detection of oral health issues: During a dental cleaning, your dentist or hygienist will examine your mouth for signs of oral health issues such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. Early detection of these issues can help prevent more serious problems down the road.
Fresh breath and a bright smile: Regular cleanings can remove surface stains and leave your teeth looking brighter and cleaner. Additionally, removing plaque and tartar can help eliminate bad breath and leave your mouth feeling fresher.
Overall health benefits: Poor oral health has been linked to several systemic health issues such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. By maintaining good oral health through regular cleanings, you may be able to reduce your risk of developing these and other health problems.
Schedule your dental cleaning today to ensure good oral health, prevent tooth decay and gum disease, detect oral health issues early, improve the appearance of teeth, and promote overall health.
