Nightguard for Bruxism – Teeth Grinding
“Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.” ~ Winnie the Pooh
The sound of your little one grinding his teeth while sleeping can be unsettling. Nearly a third of American children have this tendency. Although most will grow out of it, children are not the only ones with this nocturnal habit. According to the National Sleep Foundation, approximately eight percent of adults are teeth grinders as well.
New Yorkers, along with the rest of the country’s adults, are under a great deal of pressure these days. It seems there are stressors at every turn, so grinding and clenching your teeth unconsciously is not surprising. The damage bruxism could be causing to your teeth and oral health may be surprising. Cracked or broken teeth are common among such individuals.
Les Belles NYC provides a soothing environment in which you can relax while we address your bruxism with general dentistry. Our welcoming space is conducive to healthy, restorative repose from the stressors you face. While you relax, you will learn about the benefits of using a nightguard to protect your teeth. You may also wish to incorporate into your own lifestyle some of the healthy disciplines we practice here to help relieve some of your stress. Aromatherapy and soothing music are classic and rejuvenating options for restoring clarity and peace of mind.
Treatment for Bruxism
Children seldom need intervention for bruxism because most outgrow the habit. However, for adults, experiencing chronic bruxism, teeth clenching, and grinding requires help. Les Belles NYC provides holistic help that protects your teeth and enhances your overall well-being at the same time.
Interventions for bruxism may include therapy, protective guards, or medication in extreme cases. We provide effective and customized remedies and will work with you to find the best and healthiest solution for your bruxism habit. The nightguard provides a gentle, simple solution by making a custom ramp for your grinding habits that allows more room for your tongue. Nightguards are custom made to fit your mouth.
