Nightguard for Bruxism – Teeth Grinding

Bruxism or teeth grinding is a common issue that can cause extensive damage to your smile. If you constantly clench your jaw or grind your teeth in your sleep, this can create extreme wear and tear on your teeth. While you can use stress-relief techniques to stop jaw clenching when you are awake, you may need protective gear to protect your teeth while you sleep. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we offer customized dental nightguards for bruxism as part of our family dentistry treatments to help protect your smile.

When you jaw clench or grind your teeth, you are putting hundreds of pounds of pressure on your teeth. The grinding motion of the jaw and teeth is meant to crush tough food fibers, but if no food is there, that crushing effect happens to your teeth. This can cause fractures or cracks in the teeth, weakening their structure and putting them at risk for decay and infection. Those with bruxism will often wear down the enamel on their teeth, which can lead to tooth sensitivity and higher incidences of decay, as well as bite alignment problems.

Dental Nightguards – Protection for Your Smile

A dental nightguard offers a protective covering for your teeth that can reduce wear and tear on your smile. Our dentist can create a customized nightguard for your teeth that is comfortable and easy to use when you sleep each night. This can prevent teeth grinding and clenching, or at least minimize the damage to your teeth. Plus, your sleep partner will appreciate the quiet nights without the sound of grinding teeth that can keep some people awake at night.

If you are a teeth grinder, do not let this problem destroy your smile. Contact our office and schedule an appointment to discuss using a customized dental nightguard to protect your teeth from bruxism.

I highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are gracious, helpful, courteous and accommodating. Dr. Sagunarthy is a wonderful dentist. This is from someone who has always suffered with dental and gum issues. He is current on dental information, kind, gentle and professional! I am so happy to have found this practice!

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.

Midge Zimmerman

I have dental anxiety. I dreaded locating a dentist after recently moving to the area. I had gone to another dentist in the area but quickly changed to Gold Hill Denistry. Dr. Sagarnathy and staff are always kind, gentle and concerned with my well being. They also do a really good dental work. Other than routine work, I have had an implant, and chipped tooth repaired, all are doing well.
