Nightguard for Bruxism

At Active Dental in Flower Mound, we understand the discomfort and potential dental health risks associated with bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding and clenching. This condition, often occurring during sleep, can lead to various dental problems if left untreated. Our dedicated team is committed to providing effective solutions, including personalized nightguard bruxism treatments, to prevent the adverse effects of teeth grinding and clenching on your oral health.

Understanding Teeth Clenching and Grinding

Bruxism can manifest in several ways, with teeth grinding and clenching being the most common. This involuntary action, especially prevalent at night, can cause significant wear and tear on your teeth, leading to enamel erosion, increased tooth sensitivity, and even chipped or broken teeth. Additionally, bruxism can contribute to jaw disorders, headaches, and other facial pain.

Common Causes of Teeth Clenching/Grinding Include:

  • Stress and Anxiety: High levels of stress or anxiety can lead to teeth grinding and clenching, often as a subconscious response.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Abnormal alignment of teeth can contribute to bruxism, as the teeth might grind together unevenly.
  • Sleep Disorders: Conditions such as sleep apnea are often associated with an increased risk of bruxism.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Consumption of caffeine or alcohol, certain medications, and smoking can exacerbate teeth grinding.

Benefits of Custom-Fitted Nightguards for Teeth Grinding

Our approach to treating bruxism focuses on alleviating the symptoms and preventing further damage to your teeth. Custom-fitted nightguards are at the forefront of our treatment options, offering a simple yet effective solution to protect your teeth from the effects of grinding and clenching. Patients gain the following when choosing this treatment option:

  • Protection: Nightguards provide a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth, preventing wear and damage caused by grinding.
  • Comfort: Unlike over-the-counter options, custom-fitted nightguards are designed specifically for your mouth, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.
  • Reduced Pain: By minimizing the impact of teeth grinding, nightguards can help alleviate jaw pain and reduce the likelihood of headaches.
  • Prevention of Dental Issues: Consistent use of nightguards can prevent the need for more extensive dental work in the future, such as crowns, bridges, or implants to repair damaged teeth.

Had a great experience with Dr. Josh. He was thorough with my dental check up and professional at all times. He informed me of preventative/pro-active measures to maintain health teeth & gums. Likewise, he was able to get rid of calculus/plaque build up on my lower central & lateral incisors. I would recommend him to anyone that is wanting a pleasant time & helpful dentist! FYI - He’s the one with the crazy hair and nice beard.

I had an emergency on a Saturday and they were able to get me in immediately, literally within 10 minutes. The staff was friendly and efficient, and diligent about getting my insurance sorted out and explaining costs upfront. Dr. Bolus was awesome in explaining to me the treatment plan and effectively resolved my emergency issue within 30 minutes and made sure I was as comfortable as possible. I came back for my annual cleaning 4 months later and that experience was similarly quick, thorough, efficient and comfortable.

My wife and I came in at 5:00, although they are open until 7pm. It was very easy to get in and be seen!! The Dentist was young but quite knowledgeable! Handsome also, as my wife says. The staff and nurses were very prompt in explaining everything and were great as well. Dr. JOSH is amazing!! Thank you Collins St. Dental!!!

Usually I am very nervous/anxious when going to the dentist but today I felt completely at ease here. Ally was so sweet when I spoke to her to make my appointment and she is just as sweet in person. Everyone there is so kind and Doctor Bolus was the kindest gentleman I’ve met in Dentistry. I would highly recommend Collin St Dental to everyone!

My first experience was with Ally. I had just moved and a few days later I was in horrible pain. She talked to me and made me feel at ease. Meet with Dr Bolus and he was amazing! He diagnosed the problem and took great care of me. My husband and I have had several visits and have had a great experience with all the staff! They are the best!!
