There is a medical condition called bruxism
– it’s when you clench and grind teeth in your sleep. Without even knowing
it, this damages your teeth enamel and reduces their life-span. Moreover, bruxism
can cast a vote against implants and caps, since whatever soft sort artificial
teeth are, any ceramics is still harder then natural bone. So by grinding at
night, the harder ceramic will destroy the opposite natural bone even faster.
However, there is a solution. Buy a silicone dental guard.
It has two identical parts, each of them has a small handle. Hold it by
the handle and put in boiling water for 8 seconds, then immediately insert in
your mouth and clench your teeth hard. Repeat this 3-4 times, until you
get a perfect cast of your teeth. You may cut off the handles now.
This thermoforming process allows the protector to stick to your teeth all
through the night, protecting them from each other. So, night grinding in
the bedroom should cease. Talking about beds, I’m sure a true visionary
can find a lot more bedroom applications for a teeth protector like this
