Wearing a Mouthguard to Improve Sleeping

Posted on 11/16/2020 by Lemond Hunter
Wearing a Mouthguard to Improve SleepingWe can customize a mouthguard for you to wear at night to relax your jaw and position it so you will tense it less. By using a mouthguard for this purpose, we can help you improve your level of sleep at night. When a nightguard is made, it is designed to slightly keep your jaws apart. As a result, your breathing will improve, which will help you get a better night's rest.

How a Mouthguard Can Relieve Bruxism

When you wear a mouthguard, it will also prevent you from clenching or grinding the teeth - a habit known as bruxism. Not only can this activity damage and wear the enamel, it can also lead to loose fillings, cracks in the teeth, chips, and decay. Therefore, wearing a nightguard will help keep your fillings and restorations intact, and reduce the dental damage that can result from clenching and grinding the teeth. Again, a custom-made mouthguard will help you relax your jaw muscle, so you will see a significant improvement in your oral health and overall sleep quality. Not only will you feel more rested during the day, having more sleep at night will make you feel less tired or stressed. Therefore, you may find it helpful to learn more about getting a mouthguard to ensure a better night's sleep or to protect the teeth. When you have this type of advantage, you will feel more confident about your oral health and will experience a higher sense of well-being as well. Because clenching and grinding the teeth is often linked to sleep problems, having a mouthguard made is one of the best ways you can combat these kinds of reflex disturbances in your sleep.
