Mouthguards for parafunction ( bruxism )
Clenching and grinding teeth can often be due to stress, and may cause headaches and jaw stiffness, as well as tooth wear. Once the outer hard tooth enamel surface is worn away, the underlying softer dentine is exposed. Dentine will wear away faster than enamel and can lead to tooth sensitivity. Specific mouthguards can be used to limit damage to teeth caused by tooth wear due to clenching or grinding and help relax tension in facial muscles thus providing relief.
