Frequent morning headaches and jaw pains are signs you grind your teeth at night. Your personalized night guard will keep your top and bottom teeth separated and your jaw in a more relaxed position to ease your headaches and other symptoms, too.

Common Questions About Mouthguards

Why are mouthguards important?

Mouthguards can serve several important functions, including protecting your teeth, gums, jaw, and head while playing sports and preventing you from grinding your teeth at night. In either case, a mouthguard created by your dentist is the best way to ensure a custom, comfortable fit and that it’s made of high-quality, durable material.

How does a mouthguard work for snoring?

Snoring is caused when your tongue and tissues in your throat relax during sleep, partially obstructing your airway. If you suffer from sleep apnea, your airway may become completely blocked, causing you to briefly awaken many times during the night. A custom mouthguard solves both problems by easing your jaw into a position that keeps your airway clear.

Can mouthguards help with teeth grinding?

Custom mouthguards are one of the most common, conservative solutions for teeth grinding. Because this oral device fits over your upper and lower teeth, it keeps you from involuntarily clenching and grinding your teeth together while you sleep. This will protect your tooth enamel from damage and alleviate the pressure on your jaw. As a result, it will eliminate other symptoms like headaches and jaw pain.

Is teeth grinding causing my headaches?

It’s possible, yes. Teeth grinding and clenching can lead to inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that causes pain in the surrounding muscles of the head and neck, which can be misinterpreted as migraines. By wearing a mouthguard, you can alleviate the pain caused by teeth grinding and other triggers of TMJ inflammation and potentially experience relief from headaches.
