Think you might need a night guard? Grinding teeth and jaw clenching are aggravating yet common issues for many Americans. These actions are involuntary and, since the force of the jaw is so powerful, can cause severe, permanent, and painful damage — all while you sleep.
Although the problem is serious, the solution is often as simple as a bite splint or night guard from Asha Dental in Leawood and Lenexa, KS. This removable appliance is different from an athletic mouthguard, as it snaps into place to form a layer between your top and bottom teeth and relieves the tension in your jaw.
A night guard may be right for you if:
- you experience pain, soreness, or swelling of the jaw
- your teeth show evidence of wear or erosion
- you have porcelain crowns or veneers that are susceptible to damage
Knowing your teeth are protected with a night guard will help you rest a little easier. Some insurance plans cover all or at least a portion of the cost, and our helpful team can find out if yours does, too. Call Asha Dental in Leawood, Lenexa, KS, to schedule an appointment today.
