Nightguards in St. Paul, MN

Choose Highland Dental for Fully Customized Oral Appliances

Do you wake up in the morning with a sore jaw or a headache? Has your partner told you they can hear you grinding your teeth at night? You may be one of the many people with bruxism. Nightly teeth grinding is a real pain… plus, it can be a serious threat to your oral health. The good news is that Highland Dental can help!

Why you may need a Nightguard

When you suffer from bruxism, you grind your teeth and clench your jaw without even realizing it. Most of the time, bruxism occurs at night, while you’re asleep. However, some patients also grind and clench their teeth during the day, completely unaware of what’s happening inside their mouths. The number one cause of bruxism is stress, but other things such as age and related health issues can be contributing factors.

Grinding and clenching your teeth is not good for them. In fact, bruxism can cause a number of oral health issues, including excessive wear, chips, cracks, jaw pain, and headaches. It is also a contributing issue in a painful jaw joint disorder known as TMD.

For patients with bruxism, it may seem like there’s no relief. But there is a solution that will ease your pain and save your teeth — a nightguard.

A nightguard is a custom-made oral appliance that fits over your teeth to protect them from the harmful effects of grinding and clenching. As the name implies, you wear it at night, while you’re asleep. Wearing a nightguard will not cure bruxism. It will, however, help keep your teeth healthy and intact.

Come to Highland Dental for Your Nightguard

Dr. Mark Brooks has decades of experience treating patients who suffer from bruxism. After a thorough examination of your teeth and bite, he can recommend the right solution to help you feel better and preserve your teeth. If a nightguard is right for you, he will devise a personalized treatment plan that includes a custom-made appliance for you to wear at night while you sleep.

If you are concerned about subconscious teeth grinding and clenching, contact our office to schedule your one-on-one consultation with St. Paul’s most experienced dentist.

I felt welcomed!! The dental hygienist was fabulous! Even before I sat down Angie worked towards ensuring I felt comfortable. The dentist was also great. The administrative assistant called my insurance to find out if I was eligible for certain treatments. I’m definitely returning to this dentist!!! Everyone in the office deserves a GOLD STAR.
