Getting a mouth guard for grinding teeth is one of the best ways to ensure that you’re able to stop the behavior that’s so bad for your teeth and jaw over time. Grinding your teeth is so bad because it’s something that causes so much damage to the mouth, and your teeth in general. That’s why you have to be sure the habit stops, otherwise it can result in all sorts of dental work being needed down the line, as it really wears on your teeth.

But the lucky thing is that there are several different types of mouth guards out there, so you can ensure you’re able to find the right type, no matter your needs. However, they are not all good, and sometimes they can be more of an annoyance than they are worth when you can’t find the right model. That’s why you want to be prepared to go shopping for a mouth guard for grinding teeth, by knowing what to look out for in a model that might be less desirable. Here are some of the most common pros and cons that you might experience, so that you know what to avoid before committing to buying.

First up, the pros of using a mouth guard:

-Less grinding of the teeth.

This is pretty obvious as a benefit, but really important regardless. The reason that mouth guards are so effective is that they are perfectly formed to the shape of the mouth, so that they force your teeth into one position. Most grinding is done subconsciously, so you don’t even know that they are grinding and moving. The mouth guard keeps them in place, so that you can’t do this subconsciously, and as a result your teeth are going to be totally safe.

-Stopping the habit is a breeze.

Because of the way that a mouth guard is able to totally stop the grinding of your teeth without you really knowing it at all, you’ll find that you can transition out of the habit totally. It only takes around 21 days to stop a habit, even a subconscious one, and when your body gets used to not grinding at all, you may be able to go without the mouth guard again.

-There are many types to choose from.

If one type of mouth guard for grinding teeth doesn’t work, no worries at all, as you can choose amongst one of the other available types with ease, until you find a model that effectively cures your problem. While that can take a bit of time and effort on your part, you’re assured of being able to find a solution, because there are all sorts of options out there.

But of course, there are a few cons of different types of mouth guards as well.

-Can be uncomfortable

If you’re a tooth grinder in your sleep, this can be extremely uncomfortable if your mouth guard is pretty big, when you’re trying to sleep. That’s why it’s important to get a fitted model like those you would get straight from a dentist, and that are made to fit inside your mouth easily and that will hug your teeth more completely as well. So you may not want to go with a general model that you can buy at most pharmaceutical stores.

-Many are expensive

Getting a custom made mouth guard for grinding teeth is expensive, and something that not everybody can afford outright. You have to pay for the price of the procedure, as well as the fitting for the mouth guard, and then the workmanship of an expert to actually make the device up for you.

-Could be embarrassing to wear during the day.

If you have a major problem with teeth grinding, you might have to wear your mouth guard or similar type of device all throughout the day in addition to just at night as you try and curb the behavior. Just like braces can be a bit embarrassing and obvious, it’s hard to hide a mouth guard and just about everyone is going to be able to see you wearing yours. Though usually they do have solutions in the form of retainers as well, that can ease that awkwardness of having to have a large and bulky mouth guard in during the day.
