Night Guards - helping patients in Lewisville, TX

  • Do you grind your teeth at night?
  • When you wake up in the morning, is your jaw tense and sore?
  • Do you notice that you clench your jaw when you’re stressed?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a common condition known as bruxism.

Bruxism is the term for when a person clenches and grinds their teeth unconsciously, either during the day or at night. Stress is the leading cause of bruxism, but there are other causes as well. If you notice that your jaw is often sore (especially when you wake up in the morning), you experience frequent headaches, or your teeth feel painful or loose, you may be suffering from this condition, and it is important to see us as soon as possible.

Bruxism can cause serious damage to your teeth and jaw. Letting it go undiagnosed and untreated is harmful to your long-term oral health.

Sehnert Precision Dentistry Can Help!

Dr. Sehnert has treated many patients who suffer from bruxism, helping them prevent costly damage like cracked or chipped teeth or even tooth loss. One of the best and easiest solutions is a Night Guard — an appliance you wear at night that stops you from clenching and grinding while you sleep.
A Night Guard is custom made to fit securely and comfortably over your teeth. Wearing it at night prevents (further) damage to your teeth and excess strain on your jaw, so you sleep better and wake up without the lingering pain and effects of bruxism.

Benefits of wearing a Night Guard

  • Minimizes tooth wear from clenching and grinding
  • Significantly reduces stress on jaw muscles
  • Better sleep and no more morning discomfort
  • Less need for restorative treatments to fix chipped or cracked teeth

If you have been diagnosed with bruxism or think you may be unconsciously clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth while you sleep, please contact our office right away. A consultation with Dr. Sehnert can provide you with important information about the current state of your oral health and how to best minimize damage to your teeth. A night guard could help keep your teeth and mouth healthy, giving you more restful sleep and more pleasant mornings.
