Doctor Roessler on Bruxism Mouthguards
For patients that grind their teeth or clench, a mouthguard or an appliance is necessary to cover the teeth so that when they do brux or clench at night, they don’t wear down their teeth.
They’re comfortable, they’re custom-fit to you, so not getting something that’s over-the-counter that’s not going to fit properly. So the main advantage of getting the custom-fit mouthguard here, or bruxism or tooth grinding appliance here, is that it’s custom-fit and comfortable. You don’t want to wear down your teeth so that you can’t chew your food, as well as it affecting the appearance of your teeth so that they’re not worn down.
