You might be clenching hard enough to crack a walnut in your sleep
Stop losing sleep over clenching and grinding!
If you have jaw pain or wake up with headaches, you might be clenching or grinding your teeth (bruxing) without realizing it. This subconscious habit can lead to disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and problems with muscles and teeth.
The solution? Maybe there are underlying stressors causing you to be anxious in your sleep. A change in lifestyle could lessen your anxiety and help you relax while you sleep.
In the meantime, a custom-made night guard could work wonders for you.
Unlike over-the-counter night guards, which are not specific to individual patients or their specific needs, Dr. Cruz-Davis will closely examine and analyze your issues related to bruxing and create a custom night guard for you and only you, effecting a better sleep and a pain-free morning.
