Teeth grinding wearing you down? Protect your teeth & relieve jaw-pain with a night mouthguard from Perfect Smile in Adelaide
If you clench or grind your teeth at night, you’re not alone. Thankfully, a dentist-fitted mouth guard from Perfect Smile can relieve muscle tension and painful joint symptoms.
Many people suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching, often without even realising it. This habit can cause severe damage to the jaw and teeth, leading to painful conditions like TMJ disorder and worn down enamel.
Fortunately, there are ways to prevent this harmful behaviour while sleeping. Wearing a mouth splint or mouth guard fitted at Perfect Smile keeps your upper and lower teeth from pressing against each other, stopping the clenching reflex before it can do any damage. These devices also cushion the teeth during sleep, helping to alleviate any existing tension in the jaw muscles.
While it may take some time to get used to wearing a mouth splint or mouth guard at night, it’s well worth it for protecting your oral health in the long run. Consulting with a dentist at Perfect Smile is the best way to find an appropriate device and ensure proper use.
Don’t let bruxism continue to harm your smile. Consider using a properly-fitted occlusal splint or mouth guard while you sleep.

How does a splint help?
Grinding your teeth, also known as bruxism, can lead to a host of potential issues such as headaches, jaw pain, and even damage to the enamel of your teeth. A splint, often made from a mould of your teeth, can help alleviate these symptoms by providing a barrier between the upper and lower teeth. This not only prevents further damage from grinding but also helps to relax the muscles in the jaw.
In addition, a splint can be customised to fit comfortably in the mouth and worn at night when bruxism typically occurs.
While it may take time for the habit of grinding to go away completely, using a splint is a safe and effective way to address the immediate discomfort and protect against future damage to your teeth.
Also, if you’re searching for a custom fitted sports mouth guard, our dentists have both the skills and experience to fit your mouth, using the latest technology.
