People complain all the time about waking up early, and that is not just because it is Monday. Sometimes, it is because of a painful jaw. This one reason why you need to have a mouth guard.
A mouth guard is a device that covers the teeth in your mouth. Boxers wear it so that their teeth will not be broken in a match. Even if you are not going to get punched, a mouth guard can do wonders for you.
Mouth Guards are Effective Tools to Protect Your Sleep at Night
If you know someone who grinds his teeth while he sleeps, please tell him to get a mouth guard for sleeping as soon as possible.
If you or your loved one also discovers a chipped tooth one morning without knowing the cause, they may be a silent "teeth grinder" and this means that the situation has been left unchecked for long. They should schedule an appointment as soon as possible and have a ready mouth guard when they go to sleep.
Also, the grinding of teeth can change the position of your jaws which leads to headache. Those who suffer from severe headaches in the morning may find relief when they wear mouth guards while sleeping.
If you know someone who has troubles hearing while at the same time complaining of a painful jaw, they may be suffering from a Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD), where the joints connecting the jaw to the skull are having problems. A mouth guard can help ease the pain, but will not solve the TMD itself.
