Protective Dental Care While You Sleep

Headaches…jaw pain…tooth pain…fractured or unevenly worn teeth – all can be caused by grinding your teeth at night. You might not even be aware of doing it, but it may be noticeable to others. Or you may be a silent grinder, but you’re still grinding. Munster Dental Care will see the signs and can help you protect your teeth. A well-fitted night guard may be just the answer to solving this troublesome and sometimes health-damaging condition.

Grinding can be caused by:

  • Stress, worry
  • Sleep disorders
  • Abnormal bite
  • Missing or crooked teeth

Getting to the root of the problem is critical for your physical, emotional and oral health. Until you determine the cause and cure it, you can protect your teeth and reduce or eliminate the pain and discomfort grinding causes you by sleeping with a night guard. Munster Dental Care can custom fit a night guard for your mouth to help you get a restful night’s sleep free of grinding and pain.

Protective Dental Care While You Sleep

Regularly scheduled professional cleanings are critical to maintaining a healthy mouth and beautiful smile. During your cleaning appointment, the hygienist will examine your mouth and perform the following procedures:

  • Plaque Removal: Plaque is a sticky film containing bacteria that attack tooth enamel and eventually cause cavities. The bacteria also produce toxins that inflame the gums, leading to periodontal disease. Our skilled dental hygienist will remove any plaque from your teeth during your cleaning.


  • Tartar Removal: Plaque left on teeth over time hardens and becomes tartar, or calculus. It can only be removed with special dental tools. Tartar can cause gums to bleed, leading to periodontal disease, so we will take care to remove any tartar from your teeth.


  • Teeth Polishing: This final step in the dental cleaning process removes minor stains and any remaining plaque, making your teeth their whitest and brightest!

For most people, Munster Dental Care recommends a professional cleaning every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong, so make sure to call us and schedule your cleaning appointment today!
