Your jaw can produce an impressive amount of force and allows you to chew tough foods. Some of us tend to apply that pressure when we’re not necessarily eating or chewing anything. The force is being applied directly to your teeth. Bruxism or teeth grinding can cause a nasty amount of damage to your teeth. We see numerous patients with issues of jaw clenching and teeth grinding that happen while they are deep in sleep. That is why we offer fully customized dental nightguards at Feliciana Dental.
As part of our general dentistry services, our nightguard services aim to combat bruxism and protect your teeth. Grinding your teeth leads to removing the protective enamel that covers your teeth. Without the protective enamel, teeth are more likely to decay. You could find yourself needing more complicated and costly dental procedures.
Your Feliciana Dental professionals are ready to design your custom dental nightguard. Your sleeping mouth guard will be created to fit perfectly over your teeth, offering a one-to-one fit. We want to make sure sleeping is still comfortable for you, which is why we do not cut corners during the process. The mouth guard will protect your teeth from clenching and grinding while you sleep. Some of our current patients within the Feliciana Dental community that wear their nightguard allows them to sleep better. Many of them can breathe better and have found that their snoring is significantly reduced.
If bruxism or teeth grinding is an issue while you sleep, Feliciana Dental can help. Choose to protect those pearly whites before further damage happens. We are located in St. Francisville, LA, and can’t wait to hear from you. Reach out to schedule an appointment.
