What Is An Occlusal Guard?
Many people who struggle with teeth grinding could benefit from a custom occlusal guard offered by the Denver general dentistry practice of Dr. Robin Asbury of Metro Smiles, PC. She and her team offer occlusal guards which are designed to meet the needs of each patient.
You may be wondering what is an occlusal guard. It is a plastic device which will cover your teeth to help protect them from grinding and clenching damage. When you visit Dr. Robin, she will explain more about what an occlusal guard is and how it can benefit you.
Why Is A Bruxism Guard Helpful?
Bruxism refers to constantly grinding, gnashing or clenching your teeth. Symptoms include flattened, chipped or loose teeth, pain or sensitivity, and signs of chewing the inside of your cheek. Without a bruxism guard, you may experience severe face and jaw pain, tension headaches, and damage to your teeth or crowns. If you want to avoid, permanent damage, get a bruxism guard. Consequences of grinding include a sore tired jaw, sensitive teeth, loose teeth, earaches, dull headaches, neck aches, and clicking sounds when you open your mouth.
