What is the best night guard for clenching?

Are you waking up feeling tired and not rested enough to take on the day? If so, you might be suffering from a condition called night time teeth grinding, also known as bruxism in the medical world.

While there is no known cure, you've come to the right place to find the best remedy available. Recommended by most dental and sleep specialists, a night time mouthguard or night guard is an appliance you can use to quickly reduce the damaging symptoms related to grinding and clenching.

Keep reading to discover our recommendations of the best mouth guards for sleeping:

Will mouthguard help snoring?

Is snoring keeping you or your partner from getting a good night's sleep? About 50 percent of the population snores, so you are most likely very familiar with the sound of snoring. Luckily, similar to sleep apnea snoring can be reduced with the use of a mouth guard.

In fact, the famous snoring growl happens when your jaw muscles relax and allow the mouth's soft tissue to vibrate blocking the throats main airway. By wearing a mouthguard, the lower jaw is forced forward allowing greater air circulation in the mouth and less soft tissue vibrations in the throat.

Will a mouthguard help TMJ?

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ Disorder) affects millions of Americans every year. Ranging from mild face pain to headaches, earaches, dizziness and jaw clicking, the symptoms can often appear gradually and for no reason making them non diagnosable.

In most cases, a simple lifestyle change is not enough to reduce the symptoms of TMJ disorder. In fact, the only known way of preventing the symptoms is a night guard.

A night guard, otherwise known as a mouth guard or bite guard is made of a hard acrylic resin and is designed to cover the entire surface of your teeth to reduce grinding and relax the jaw muscles. To make sure you have the right device, it is recommended that you see your dentist prior to ordering.

Will mouthguard protect teeth?

A mouth guard is an essential piece of equipment in the medical and sports industry. Since grinding, clenching and physical activities carry the risk of injury to the mouth, jaw or teeth, a mouth guard, also called mouth protector, protects the teeth by cushioning impact forces and protecting the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining.

Made of resilient but forgiving material, mouth guards usually cover the upper teeth only. In fact, because the top teeth stick out more, in most cases they take the brunt of the impact force and demand more protection which is why we recommend most people wear mouth guards on their top teeth only.

Will mouthguard help with headaches?

If you grind your teeth and clench your jaw for an extended period of time, you may develop facial muscle tensions which can lead to headaches. This condition is caused by bruxism. While bruxism affects approximately 13% of adults and up to 40% of children, more than 80% of people with sleep bruxism are unaware they have it.

We recommend you see a medical professional to determine if bruxism is the cause of your headaches. If bruxism is to blame, a quick and easy remedy to its symptoms is a mouth guard. A well-fitted mouthguard will reduce headaches and protect your teeth from the damaging effects of grinding while you sleep.
Will a mouth guard stop jaw clenching?

A mouth guard is not designed to stop jaw clenching, but can be used to prevent the teeth surfaces from touching each other which reduces pressure and protects teeth enamel by reducing damage during the night.

Will a mouth guard stop jaw pain?

Mouth guards provide cushioning between the upper and lower teeth and are known to prevent face and jaw pain. In fact, when you clench your jaw while you sleep, a night guard will help lighten the tension in your jaw muscles eliminating morning jaw pain.
