Night Guards for Teeth Grinding in Adelaide

It’s incredibly common to grind or clench your teeth at night, with the majority of people generally being unaware that they are doing it. Over time however it can become a real issue not only with significant wearing on the teeth and damage caused but also through associated headaches and pain.

Do you need a Night Guard?

If you find yourself regularly waking up with dull headaches, neck and shoulder pains or stiff jaws, the chances are that you may be grinding or clenching your teeth in your sleep and could benefit from wearing a night guard. Similarly, you may spot damage to your teeth or even breakage of them. Many people who wear night guards also find that it can quickly rectify disturbed sleep patterns caused by the teeth grinding.

Ask our Dentist

Our Dentist will easily be able to spot those who grind or clench their teeth and should be able to identify whether a Night Guard will be beneficial to you. Book in for a regular dental check up and discuss with your dentist your concerns as early as possible. It’s always best to avoid delay in making an appointment as the earlier the night guard is in place, the less damage will be caused to the teeth.

How will a Night Guard help?

It’s likely that your dentist will recommend having a custom made night guard fitted. This usually involves taking moulds of your teeth (using a soft putty) which may be a little uncomfortable but not painful. From this, the dentist will be able to make a fitted night guard specific to your teeth which will prevent contact with opposing teeth. By relieving the pressure on the teeth from grinding or clenching, damage will be limited or avoided altogether and the muscular discomfort in the jaw, neck and head should also subside.

Wearing your Night Guard

Although your night guard will be specifically moulded to your teeth and gums, it can take a little while to get used to wearing it. After a few nights, you should find it more comfortable however and it’s just a matter of time before you’ll be able to sleep soundly with it every night.

My first time seeing Quynh. She was attentive, professional and I felt that she genuinely cares about her patients. I will do my regular check-up with her from now on. The clinic was also clean and organized. Thanks a lot! Pouya Parseyan

Lovely colourful clinic and friendly staff. The dentist took the time to explain the details of the treatment I needed and made sure I was aware of all my options before I decided on a plan. Really helpful! I can’t recommend them highly enough! 🙂 Luna K
