Your jaw muscles can exert extreme pressure, allowing you to chew and grind tough foods. When you clench your jaw or grind your teeth, that pressure is put directly on your teeth. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can be detrimental to your teeth, wearing down enamel and damaging the teeth structure. A dental nightguard for bruxism-teeth grinding is a general dentistry solution to protect your teeth from unnecessary damage. At Liberty Lake Smile Source, we create customized mouthguards to prevent damage to teeth for our patients with bruxism.

Misaligned teeth, stress, anxiety and other factors can contribute to bruxism. You can make a conscious effort to control jaw clenching and teeth grinding when you are awake, but it is hard to control when you sleep. If you grind your teeth in your sleep, you may be wearing down your enamel or causing stress fractures in your teeth. This can lead to decay, infection and cracked teeth that need expensive dental treatment. To prevent damage to your teeth from bruxism while you sleep, a nightguard is a non-invasive solution.

Customized Dental Nightguard

A nightguard is an oral device that fits over your teeth to provide a barrier between your upper and lower teeth. Wearing a nightguard can prevent teeth grinding while you sleep and protect your oral health. Our dentists can design a customized nightguard that fits comfortably over your teeth. You will quickly become accustomed to wearing the mouthguard when you sleep – some people enjoy other benefits beyond bruxism treatment. Wearing a nightguard can help with snoring and may reduce pressure on your jaw joint if you have TMJ issues. Many people sleep better and wake up more refreshed once their teeth grinding and jaw clenching are reduced.

If you wake up with teeth or jaw pain due to bruxism, or there is damage to your teeth, treatment can protect your smile and oral health. Give us a call at Liberty Lake Smile Source to explore bruxism treatment with a dental nightguard. Contact our dental center in Liberty Lake, WA. We serve the Spokane Valley and our neighbors in Post Falls, ID, so call today to book your appointment.

Great location, great people, and all around a great dentist. I recently transferred to their office due to location, and I’m very impressed with everything they have to offer. From the receptionist, to the hygienist, and the dentist are all super friendly and very professional.

I absolutely love the team at Liberty Lake Smile Source.I've been seeing Dr. Tim Casey for over 5 years and you won't find someone who is more attentive, caring and professional. We only see each other a couple times a year and he always checks in on how my family and I are doing.All of the staff are top-notch and I would 100% recommend this team to anyone who asks.

From start to finish, a great experience.Patty had a warm and welcoming smile to get me checked in (and out). I met with Heather (with a little help from Elizabeth) who were fantastic at explaining the whole process and making sure to breakdown jargon and let me know the findings of my cleaning. I got to watch some silly and funny animal tv on the ceiling which had some great ways to make me smile during the visit. They took great X-rays and pictures of my teeth to ensure all aspects of my dental care were considered. Dr. Macall was personable while also professional and informative. Would 10/10 recommend the entire process with this group. Thank you for your great care and even though it’s the dentist office, I look forward to returning.

No pressure on what needed to be done or how soon. Office personal were very pleasant and attentive. Explained the treatment plan and insurance coverage and what my costs would be. It was a very pleasant and comfortable visit. I would recommend this office to others.

The staff was very friendly. Office clean and welcoming. Hygienist was extremely knowledgeable and gentle. Dr Casey explained all scenarios to me and what work was needed first. I liked the efficiency of all his staff and I think it was my best experience with any dentist.

Recently moved here from Chicago, and a family member recommended Liberty Lake Smile. It took a brief and easy website visit and a follow-up call from them, and I had an appointment right away! I was impressed at how nice and professional the entire staff was, and it was apparent they really did care, and know their business! I was surprised at how thorough my initial visit and assessment actually was. Ann, the Hygienist and Dr. Casey demonstrated their competence, experience and professionalism, and left me with a feeling of confidence that they would provide excellent care! Moreover, they came up with a detailed plan to map out the course of action. I would happily recommend Liberty Lake Smile for your dental needs.
