Does my child need a night guard?

Some children tend to be more anxious at times, which can lead to grinding and clenching their teeth. Your child may not be aware of it because it is usually done when they are sleeping or when they are anxious. Grinding and clenching usually show up when your child complains about a headache or pain in their jaw. They also tend to be tired throughout the day because they do not get quality sleep the night before. If you notice any chips or wearing down of your child's teeth and/or sensitivity, it is another way to indicate they may be clenching or grinding at night. To eliminate these symptoms, contact us at NexGen Dentistry to speak to our pediatric dentist about your child is a candidate for a night guard. It is easy to use and comfortable to wear each night. It also helps ensure your child's teeth remain aligned.
