Bruxism is the grinding and clenching of teeth. These habits can damage teeth and many people are not even aware that they suffer from bruxism. The reason many people may not realize they are grinding their teeth is that they are doing it in their sleep. This is where Nightguards are extremely useful in treating this behavior.
Here are the symptoms of the signs of tooth-grinding and teeth-clenching:
most common type of mouthguard used to treat grinding teeth for mild or occasional cases
These mouthguards are used for more severe cases of bruxism. They are soft on the inside and have a hard exterior.
