Your child’s jaw can produce a huge amount of force and allows them to chew tough foods. Some kids tend to apply that pressure when we’re not eating or chewing anything. The force is actually being applied directly to their teeth. Bruxism or teeth grinding can cause severe damage to their teeth. We see many kids who grind their teeth while they are deep in sleep. As part of our general dentistry services we offer custom pediatric nightguards.
Our night guard services aim to combat bruxism and protect your child’s teeth. Teeth grinding leads to the removal of protective enamel that covers the teeth. Without the protective enamel, your children’s teeth are more likely to decay. This usually leads to more costly procedures and treatments.
Stop Teeth Grinding
Our Pediatrics on Park professionals are ready to design a custom pediatric dental night guard. Your child’s sleeping mouth guard will be created to fit perfectly over their teeth, offering a one-to-one fit. The mouth guard will protect their teeth from clenching and grinding while they sleep.
We want to make sure sleeping is still comfortable for them, which is why we do not cut corners during the process. Some of our current patients within the Pediatrics on Park family say that wearing their nightguard actually allows them to sleep better. Many of them can breathe better, which allows for a more restful night of sleep.
If bruxism or teeth grinding is an issue for your child, Pediatrics on Park can help. Choose to protect that happy and healthy smile before further damage happens. We are located in South Plainfield, New Jersey, and can’t wait to hear from you. Reach out to schedule an appointment for your child’s nightguard.
