If you are prone to grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw in your sleep, you could wake up with sore jaw muscles, chronic headaches, earaches, and jaw pain. A mouthguard could help minimize your symptoms and prevent you from grinding your teeth while sleeping. A night guard is a comfortable, removable appliance that acts as a splint to protect the jaw joint.
