According to the American Dental Association, teeth grinding - or bruxism - can be caused by stress and often happens when people are asleep at night. The condition can lead to dental health problems such as sore jaws and even tooth fractures if left untreated.
Some dentists prescribe a teeth guard to help protect the dental health of those who inadvertently grind their teeth at night. This can alleviate jaw pain and other associated problems.
One company even developed a disposable guard to allow bruxism sufferers to find their equipment anywhere, no matter if they leave their dentist-assigned tool at home.
Grind-No-More offers tooth protection and can be used for three nights in a row, which can be a great idea for business trips or weekends away.
The ADA also explains that bruxism can be caused by stress and excess tension and suggests that patients try to relax, perhaps trying yoga or aromatherapy. However, if this does not help, your dentist can specially fit you with a guard to take some of the pressure away from the teeth and jaws.
