Do you find yourself frequently waking with headaches or jaw pain? Bruxism may be the cause of your woes. Bruxism is a condition in which you gnash, grind, or clench your teeth. Unfortunately, night time grinding not only causes daytime discomfort, it also damages your teeth. Thankfully, with the help of our customized mouthguards, Escondido, CA, patients can eliminate bruxism.
To reduce jaw inflammation, ibuprofen may be used to try to resolve the issue conservatively. If the discomfort persists, teeth may be protected from grinding and clenching with a nightguard. Our nightguards will generally resolve issues for the majority of patients with muscle or joint pain.
Although it is possible to buy a nightguard at a local drugstore, McMaster Dental supplies nightguards offering the following benefits:
- Customized fit–your smile isn’t identical to anyone else’s–why should your mouthguard be? We custom-create your nightguard by taking quick impressions of your teeth and gums. This ensures a perfectly snug, yet comfortable fit.
- Compact–unlike bulky store nightguards, our custom designed ones are extremely thin, lightweight, yet very effective.
A personalized nightguard from McMaster Dental will fit your teeth, mouth, and bite like it should. “Just as you would purchase the right-sized clothes, a right-sized mouthguard is ideal.” – Dr. McMaster.
