For many people who have dental issues, there is what is a seemingly benign cause at the root of their dental problems. For some, it could be a lack of dental hygiene while others may be afflicted with bad habits. One of the bad habits that causes a lot of problems for people is teeth grinding. The grinding of teeth is something that happens involuntarily and usually while you are asleep. That is why, eventually, you may wake up with severe dental pain and not know why. At Dr. Paul Graf DDS, our staff is well-educated, can determine why you are grinding your teeth, and help you avoid the issues that may result from this habit.

What Is Teeth Grinding?

Teeth grinding is when you grind the biting surfaces of your teeth against each other. This is especially problematic because when teeth grind against each other, it wears down the enamel. Enamel is the protection your teeth have against all the bacteria and particulates in the mouth that can cause damage to your teeth. When your enamel is worn down, it is easier for cavities to form and for teeth to break. It will also necessitate a lot of expensive dental care. That is why getting a night guard is extremely important.

What Are Night Guards?

A night guard is a molded piece of plastic that fits comfortably in your bite, allowing you to grind away but instead of grinding against your teeth, you’re grinding against a harmless piece of plastic. This means you do not have to worry about the harmful effects of teeth grinding. In order to create a proper a night guard your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, and then the lab will make your night guard and ship it to the dentist. You will have to wear the night guard every night. Getting a night guard is very easy, visit us at the office of Dr. Paul Graf in Spring, TX to get yours today.
