Nightguards are highly recommended for individuals with this bruxism habit. A nightguard is a removable appliance worn at night to help minimize the damage or wear while clenching or grinding during sleep.
Bruxism, also known as clenching/grinding is a common oral habit, especially among adults. There are different causes for grinding, the most common being stress and your bite not fitting properly. Bruxism can cause frequent headaches, jaw soreness, and wearing down of teeth.
