Night Guards

Protect your teeth from grinding

I grind in my sleep, can this affect my teeth?

Grinding your teeth in your sleep can cause long-term damage to your teeth. Also called Bruxism, grinding your teeth can also cause pain and discomfort in your jaw, leading to headaches and earaches in cases.

Treatment

Treatment for grinding depends on the cause. To ensure your grinding doesn’t do damage to you as you sleep, we recommend you wear a mouth guard. Mouth guards are made by taking a simple mould of your teeth in the dental surgery, and sending this mould off to a specialist company to create your personalised mouth guard.

What causes grinding?

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Of those who grind their teeth, 80% grind subconsciously as they sleep
  • Bruxism has also been linked to obstructive sleep apnoea, interrupting your breathing as you sleep
