Why Choose Infinity Dental Care For Nightguards For Bruxism?
Bruxism is typically known as teeth grinding or clenching. Although many cases of this happen while a person sleeps, this condition can also occur during the daytime or while conscious. When this happens, the grinding can begin to wear down, fracture, and possibly break your teeth without treatment. The difficulty is in identifying the issue at all, especially if the condition tends to happen during sleep. However, there are several symptoms you can expect from teeth grinding, including:
One of the best ways to determine if you’re affected by bruxism is by scheduling a consultation with our team. We’ll evaluate your dental condition to confirm if teeth grinding/clenching has occurred. Afterward, we’ll take accurate digital impressions of your smile and send them to a dental lab to fabricate your nightguard. This oral appliance will be made out of thin, durable plastic that is meant to be worn around your upper teeth. Once your nightguard is completed, we’ll call you back into our office. At that point, we’ll ensure it fits and works properly before you leave. You’ll be able to enjoy a more restful and comfortable sleep in the long run.
Whether you’re suffering from bruxism at night or during the day, it can be tempting to try store-bought products to protect your teeth. However, these items won’t be custom-built for your particular smile, and they’ll only last a few months before needing to be replaced. With Dr. Kalluri’s help, you can receive a nightguard that fits your exact specifications and can last several years with proper care! Most importantly, you’ll effectively prevent any damage to your teeth due to bruxism, preserving a healthier smile and allowing you to rest easier in the future.
