Sleeping plays a huge role in our overall health. It affects how our bodies recover from one day’s activities to the next and its ability to build a strong immune system. Without enough sleep, our body will not get the rest that it needs to regenerate and heal itself. Dental conditions like teeth grinding and sleep apnea can affect the quality of our sleep and may lead to more serious health conditions like cardiovascular diseases if left untreated.

Protection for Teeth Grinding + 
Whiter Teeth in Charlotte

Bruxism is a serious condition that affects many patients. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, affects 10 to 15% of adults and it can cause a disturbing grinding sound at night, tight and painful jaws, popping or clicking of the jaw, facial pain, headache, swelling, and damaged teeth.

Patients who are dealing with bruxism need immediate medical attention. Most of the time, they do not know that they have the condition because it commonly happens at night during sleep. However, bruxism is very disturbing to those who are around you while you sleep. It is important to consult with your dentist immediately if you know or you suspect that you have bruxism to avoid its negative effects on your oral health.

The most common solution for bruxism is a night guard. If you are a resident of Charlotte, we offer protective night guards at Build-A-Smile that can help solve your teeth grinding problems. Plus, now you can enhance your smile with FREE teeth whitening when you complete getting your sleep device!

What are Night Guards?

Night guards are dental appliances that are worn over the teeth to lessen the pressure on the jaw and protect your tooth enamel from damage. Build-A-Smile’s custom-fitted night guards are made with top-of-the-line materials and prepared with the utmost care in our laboratory. While custom-fitted night guards are generally more expensive, Build-A-Smile provides many different pricing options and can help you find a solution that fits your needs and budget.
