Snore less, sleep better

Anti-snoring treatment from Ascent Dental Care

If you (or your partner) snore or grind your teeth in your sleep, you might be surprised to learn that your Ascent dentist can help with snoring and teeth grinding problems. Whether it’s the pain of grinding or the noise of snoring that is blocking your way to a good night’s sleep, we can provide a bespoke dental night guard to alleviate the problem.

Comfortable dental night guards for your peace of mind

Dental night guards are custom-made in a dental lab using your dental impressions. They work in different ways depending on your concerns and are a completely bespoke solution. For example, while a night guard for bruxism (teeth grinding and jaw clenching) cushions your teeth against the pressures of grinding, a snoring device holds your jaw in the right position to keep your airway open – so you and your partner can finally enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.

Do you suffer from teeth grinding?

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can either be an involuntary action or a bad habit. In most cases, this happens as a person is sleeping subconsciously and can lead to permanent damage to the enamel (protective layer) of the teeth, gradually wearing it away.

This can lead to both short- and long-term problems such as:

  • Headaches
  • Jaw Ache
  • Facial Muscle Ache
  • Stiffness/Tightness of the shoulders
  • Earache
  • Cracked/worn teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • TMJ (Temporomandibular joint syndrome)

What can cause teeth grinding?

Various factors may lead to this bad habit:

  • Anxiety/Stress – If a person is anxious or has severe stress, they can subconsciously grind while sleeping.
  • Lifestyle – if you drink alcohol, take drugs or smoke, you are more likely to grind your teeth.
  • Medicines – mood-changing drugs (like anti-depressants) can have bruxism as an associated side effect.
  • Abnormal Bites – If you have an abnormal bite when your lower and upper teeth come together, it is more likely for you to grind your teeth.
