Do I need a mouthguard for protection if I am clenching and grinding my teeth?

Clenching and grinding of the teeth can cause significant damage to the smile, including the soft tissues of the mouth and the natural teeth. Additionally, it can result in muscle tension and pain that becomes uncomfortable. This condition, also known as bruxism, can be addressed using a mouthguard for grinding teeth.

What is a mouthguard?

A mouthguard is a customized appliance that is made to be worn to protect the smile. Some athletic mouthguards are used during high-impact sports like football and soccer. For patients with bruxism and TMJ/TMD, a mouthguard is used to prevent teeth grinding and clenching. This alleviates pain and discomfort from the surrounding joints and muscles for those with mild to severe bruxism.

Roodsar of Auburn Centre Dental in Waterloo, Ontario, may encourage you to talk to him about your condition to get a definitive diagnosis and to discuss possible treatment options. This may include wearing a mouthguard at night to cushion the teeth and gums. It reduces the risk of damage to the smile. We offer customized mouthguards and nightguards not only for patients with bruxism and TMJ but also for those who participate in high-contact sports and activities.

When do I need to wear my mouthguard for bruxism?

If you clench and grind your teeth during the night, you should use your mouthguard as a nightguard to lessen the tension of the jaw joint and muscles. Mouthguards for sports are worn during play to protect the teeth and gums from harm if impact occurs to the mouth area.
