night guard on model of teeth

2020 has been one of the most stressful years of this century so far. With everything going on in the world these days, the prevalence of clenching and grinding teeth (aka bruxism) has increased dramatically. With this increase in bruxism, we have noticed a lot more incidences of broken teeth, TMJ related discomfort, and even more prevalence of gum disease which involves bone loss around the teeth. Investing in a night guard is a great way to avoid broken teeth and these other issues relating to clenching and grinding. For example, the cost of one crown is about 3 times the cost of a night guard. By making an investment into a night guard you can lower the risk of fracturing your teeth which will help you save money in the long run.
