Top Three Reasons to Invest in a Night Mouth Guard

Posted on 8/15/2017 by Dr. Ryan

Have you ever woken up with mouth pain? This could be a sign that you do things with your mouth at night while you are asleep. The two most common things that people do with their mouth in their sleep is grinding their teeth and clenching their jaws tight.

If you do either one of these things, a night mouth guard may be the best investment you ever make. Here are the best reasons to consider getting a mouth guard for at night.

1.) Mouth Guards Can Stop Tooth Damage

Both grinding and clenching your teeth can lead to tooth damage. If you want to avoid it, you must wear a mouth guard at night. The only way to stop your teeth from enduring more damage than they have already gone through, you must wear a night guard all night long.

2.) Mouth Guards Can Stop Jaw Damage

When you grind or clench your teeth, you put a lot of pressure on the jaw. It can cause the jaw to wiggle back and forth instead of staying nicely at rest. Plus, if you push down on your jaw, it can leave you with TMJ disorders. The only way to prevent that is by wearing a mouth guard at night.

3.) Mouth Guards Can Help You Breathe Better at Night

For those who suffer from sleep apnea, wearing a mouth guard at night can help them survive the night and breathe better. Sleep apnea is rough, but it can be managed more properly by adding a mouth guard to your daily dental routine.

If you think you could benefit from having a night mouth guard, then it is important you speak with your dentist about it. Let them take a look at your mouth and decide if it could be the ideal treatment for your symptoms.

"Had an overall great experience with Dr. Ryan. The staff was very courteous and professional. Most important, the work they did, (two implants, to hold lower dentures) was very secure and I'm free of the hassle and pain. I was concerned at first but he answered all my questions and the whole procedure went well. I definitely would recomend them if you need that type of work done. 2 thumbs up!"

"The office is well run. Everyone I had contact with was friendly and knowledgeable. Procedures were explained and all questions answered. Oral surgery can be an intimidating proposition, but Dr. Ryan and his staff are sensitive to that by providing excellent pain management and results."
