Stop Damage From Teeth GrindingHouston, TX

Request An Appointment

Teeth grinding in Houston can be a very destructive habit. It damages your enamel, leaving your teeth looking worn down. With enough force, you can even crack or break teeth, meaning you’ll need a restorative dentistry procedure to fix them. Dr. Ali Falahat can fit you for a custom mouthguard that will stop your grinding (bruxism), so you won’t need a costly repair.

Our mouthguard will:

  • Be made especially for you from impressions of your teeth, so it fits better than a store-bought mouthguard
  • Keep your smile in better shape
  • Prevent teeth sensitivity caused by grinding
  • Relieve facial tenderness, headaches, and other unpleasant symptoms associated with bruxism
  • Help you and your bed partner get a more restful night’s sleep

If you suspect you may be grinding your teeth in your sleep, call Dental Bright at (713) 357-6355. If a dental exam shows signs of a grinding habit, Dr. Falahat will likely suggest a mouthguard for you.

Take Good Care of Your Mouthguard to Extend Its Life

The lab that makes your custom mouthguard uses the highest-quality materials. That means your mouthguard should last for years with proper care. Here are some tips on how to handle your mouthguard:

  • Brush it with a non-abrasive toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrush before wearing it. If you don’t have access to a brush and paste, rinse it with water before inserting it.
  • Store it in a ventilated case.
  • Once a week or so, clean it with 3 percent hydrogen peroxide. Soak the mouthguard in the peroxide for no more than 10 minutes.
  • Don’t use any alcohol-based product on your mouthguard, including rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer. Other cleaning solutions to avoid include dishwashing soap and denture tablets.
