Some people aren’t even aware if they are teeth grinders but some things you might experience: waking up to your jaw being sore, slight headaches, tiredness (as it can interrupt sleep).
It is not uncommon to have this from time to time, but for those who have a more serious case, it can be unhealthy for your teeth and can create other dental issues - all of which can be avoided.

Kids love to get involved in sports. But along with this comes the liability for injuries. It is reported that 39 percent of child dental injuries are related to sports. Mouthguards are a good way to prevent against mouth injuries. If your child is involved in contact sports, you can help protect against incidents that can cause mouth, cheek and tongue injuries.
It’s more expensive to repair shattered teeth or create dental bonds - the easier solution is to get a custom-fit mouthguard made. This precaution can save you from unneeded doctor visits and bills and keep your child’s teeth intact.
Call Beautiful Smiles La Jolla today to schedule a consultation and find out if getting a custom made mouthguard in La Jolla is the right step for you.
