Protecting Your Orthodontics While You Sleep: Why It's Necessary And How It's Done
When you have orthodontics installed on your teeth, you have to do everything possible to clean the braces, wires and your teeth. Of course, that does not account for what happens when you are asleep. Many people experience bruxism while they are sleeping, a fancy term that means you clench and grind your teeth. For a person with orthodontia, this is a really bad situation. You will need to consult with your dentist and orthodontist further to establish what can be done about this problem.
