Many of us, when we wake up in the morning, are affected because of pain in our jaws. Sometimes the pain is not just limited our jaw but can reach our heads; our headaches can begin soon after we lie down. Other times, our teeth may hurt a bit and can feel a bit loose, even if they are not.
For curing all these pains, getting rid of them, you might require the help of mouthguards. Mouthguards are designed specially to cater the needs of aggravating pain after you wake up in the morning. These pains are caused by your habit (involuntary) of teeth grinding during the night, while you are asleep. Grinding, in the field of dentistry is also known as bruxism. It is found through various research sources, that about 10% of the average Americans, every day, suffer through these pains that can affect them throughout the day. These paints can cause anxiety as well as stress. And the only viable solution to these issues is mouth guards. Mouth guards cannot just save you from the pain that you suffer after you wake up, but can also save you from damaging your teeth. This habit can be stopped and cured to give you a good night sleep.
While you are deep in your slumber, you involuntarily clench and grind your teeth. This process cannot be rationally controlled by your brain. The force you exert during chewing and biting your food, you exert approximately 3-10 times more force when you grind your teeth. You get the whole force of your dental aesthetics to help you to grind your teeth together.
There are various ways to know whether or not you should opt for dental mouthguards:
- If your teeth and muscles of your jaw are sore and tired.
- You feel the pain going up to your ears
- Sensitivity in your teeth.
- Teeth being worn down.
- Chipping and cracking of teeth.
- Teeth feel loose.
- The inside skin of your mouth might feel or be damaged.
- Indentations on your tongue.
You dental care provider is going to examine your mouth, like a regular check up. Making sure your grinding is not a sign of a potential orthodontics issue or breaking down of any dental restoration.
After the dentist is done with your check up, they will recommend mouthguards. It is up to you what kind of mouthguards to buy for yourself, only after talking to your dental care provider.
- An average mouthguard from you dental care provider can cost about $300-$500. They are custom made to fit you.
- If you are looking for a cheaper option, you can opt for sportswear mouthguards. These mouthguards would cost around $20. But not more than a $100.
- You can opt for mouthguards from online stores as well. They are also going to customized but still not going to put a hole in your pockets; they can range anywhere between $100 to $200.
