With the changing climate of COVID-19, now more than ever is it important to focus on your health. From not seeing loved ones, to stay-at-home orders, you may have experienced a lot of changes over the past year. This added stress has a direct impact on our health and can come out in many different ways. “Bruxism” or teeth grinding, is a common symptom many patients face due to stress. At Emerald Dental Care, we want you to know we are here for you! Let’s take a look at the complications that can arise from bruxism, and how a night guard can help!
What Are The Benefits?
Bruxism normally occurs when a patient is sleeping, but can even happen unconsciously when awake. Chronic teeth clenching, or grinding can not only contribute to headaches, and TMJ, but can also wear down your teeth to the point they become hyper sensitive. When you wear a nightguard, you are ensuring the protection of your teeth, as the guard will fully cover and protect them from abrasion. An effective mouth guard should be easy to clean, comfortable and durable without restricting your breathing or speech. As our team will custom make it to your smile, it will seamlessly fit and prevent any risk of you chipping your teeth!
Why Emerald Dental Centre?
If you are concerned about your stress, or are currently facing bruxism, we advise you to come in and have a comprehensive exam done. Here we can professionally assess your oral health, and provide a customized treatment plan to give you the smile you’ve always wanted! For new patients, you will receive a complimentary teeth whitening with any completed assessment and X-rays! This is a great promotion as a portion of the profit earned from this will be donated to Sick Kids Hospital. Not only will you have a new beautiful white smile, but you will be giving back to your community as well!
