Dentist 101 of Houston (713-773-1300) has updated its teeth-grinding treatment plans, offering to fit custom mouth guards for both children and adults.

The family dental practice can now alleviate the symptoms of teeth grinding, a sleep-related condition known to affect up to 17% of American children that, if left untreated, can lead to temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders.

The local clinic’s service update comes in the wake of new dental and orthodontic research into teeth grinding, including a 2022 study into the prevalence of the condition among sufferers of other sleep-related disorders, such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome.

Nocturnal teeth grinding, otherwise known as sleep bruxism, can manifest in various symptoms and side effects. While some sufferers will experience headaches and facial soreness, others may notice dental issues such as enamel erosion due to the pressure they exert on their teeth while they sleep.

To counteract the effects of grinding, Dentist 101’s experts will provide a mouthguard or ‘nightguard’, an oral device that prevents the jaws from clenching the teeth together. Dr. Su and her team of professional dental technicians will take an impression of the teeth before having a custom night guard made to order.

Nocturnal bruxism can be difficult to diagnose since it occurs while unconscious. As such, Dentist 101 encourages parents and caregivers to inform Dr. Su if their child makes audible grinding noises while asleep, or if they complain of headaches and jaw pain when they wake up.
