During the month of December, so much happens during the night when you’re sleeping. Let’s think about it!
Santa comes down your chimney while his reindeer are on your roof prancing around. Santa, in the meantime, delivers all of your gifts and eats all of your tasty treats by the tree. Chomp chomp!
Sugarplums are dancing in your head. Cue the Nutcracker!
Elves are being moved from shelf to shelf and wreaking all kinds of havoc. Imagine mischievous giggling.
Christmas mice wrap all of your gifts. Squeak Squeak!
So much is happening in your home that you probably have no idea it’s happening! Did you know you could be contributing to some of those nighttime noises as well?
Bruxism is a condition that involves teeth grinding. It usually is a noisy habit that your sleeping partner may notice. The nightly grinding can be coupled with clenching as well. Often times, this habit can be an extension of stress that you are dealing with during the day.
If you suffer from bruxism, Advance Dental can create a custom nightguard to quiet your sleep and protect your teeth from the harmful effects of teeth grinding. The nightguard will protect your teeth from being worn down or even cracked under the tremendous pressure exerted during your nighttime grinding.
Call and book an appointment with Dr. Alexis Neuman or Dr. Richard Neuman at Advance Dental. We will help you have a quiet and restful night’s sleep. You can sleep peacefully when you know you’re not disrupting your bed buddy, and you’re not harming your dental health. We look forward to seeing you at our office soon!
