What are Night Guards and Why Are They Important?

July 19, 2021

Tooth clenching and grinding are prevalent oral habits that are classified as nighttime sleep motion disorders. Clenching and grinding can occur subconsciously during the day but most commonly occurs at night. Clenching is the aggressive biting down of the upper and lower jaws together, and grinding is when the jaws move aggressively across each other, causing friction on the tooth surfaces. Nightguards act as a buffer or cushion between the upper and lower teeth to prevent tooth-on tooth trauma.

Use a Reusable Straw


It is a good idea to reduce the amount of juice/soda you consume in a day, but when you do have any liquid that contains sugar or acid, it is beneficial to use a reusable straw. The function of the straw is that it allows the fluid to bypass your teeth as you drink, thereby reducing the exposure to the sugars and acids contained in most drinks, and reducing cavity risk. Try to avoid plastic straws if possible.
