Protecting Your Teeth When You Sleep


Posted on 7/30/2017 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery can provide you with a mouthguard.
It can be really hard to protect your teeth when you sleep, since you are sleeping. However, that can be one of the most important times for you to go out of your way to protect your teeth. A lot of things can happen to your teeth at night. It is really important that you don't take your night time routines for granted. It could do a lot to damage the overall health of your teeth.

Dangers to Be Aware of When You Sleep

Sleeping with your mouth open is a problem. It dries out your mouth, which leaves your mouth much more prone to cavities and decay. This can be solved by sleeping with a mouth guard in place that holds more of the moisture in your mouth.

Grinding and clenching your teeth often happens at night, and can leave you facing long-lasting dental problems. This is also helped by wearing a mouth guard, so that way, you aren't cracking or wearing down the enamel of your teeth.

Sleep apnea is another issue that can come up while you sleep. It gives the same negative effects of sleeping with your mouth open, but it also adds to the problem that your oral tissues can begin to slide back into your throat. This can leave you gasping for air in your sleep, and can even cause you to struggle with insomnia. This also requires you to visit your dentist to get a mouth guard.

If you struggle to get good sleep, or if your teeth hurt upon waking up in the morning, it is important you talk to your dentist. They can help evaluate what is going on within your mouth, and help you protect your teeth from damage. Don’t go through another restless night without protection. Call your dentist today!
