The Simple Process
If you believe you suffer from bruxism, we’ll invite you down for a case assessment. We’ll use this time to determine the severity of your case and plan the next steps. We’ll offer impartial advice and guidance.
Should you suffer from bruxism, we’ll invite you down to have your sleep clench inhibitor fitted. We’ll do some tests to ensure it fits correctly, before providing you with the instructions for use when you’re at home.
From there, you’ll be relied upon to use the mouth guard as you sleep. Over time, this should help your ease your bruxism and the negative effects it has on both your teeth and gums, including pain and migraines.
Over time, the aim will be to prevent the negative effects of your bruxism and prevent subconscious teeth grinding in your sleep. To assist this, we can provide you with aftercare advice, often relating to alcohol or drug consumption.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is bruxism?
Bruxism is the act of teeth grinding, or the clenching of the teeth. It can be entirely subconscious, or caused through stress, alcohol consumption or the use of recreational drugs. If teeth grinding occurs when awake, the solution is simple. If it is at night, it can be harder to prevent.
This is where our sleep clench inhibitors come to play. They are top of the line mouth guards that prevent your teeth from clenching together and grinding as you sleep. They are barely detectable, allowing you to sleep easily.
How much do these mouth guards cost?
We are transparent with our costs, and lay everything out on our fees and plans page. That way, you have an idea as to how much our bruxism services cost before you first enquire. Our prices are always a fair reflection of the quality of service you’ll receive by choosing Forestside.
How does a sleep clench inhibitor work?
These mouth guards work by preventing your teeth from clamping together as you sleep. With this, you aren’t to grind subconsciously, wearing at your enamel and creating sensitive areas. They work to reduce movement of the three core jaw muscles that you use to chew.
Can Forestside accommodate nervous patients?
We certainly can. As an adult, you may find yourself embarrassed about your bruxism, but you needn’t be. Our specialists are here to accommodate any anxiety of nerves you may have. Should you prefer, you’re welcome to bring emotional support to any appointment you have to discuss or test your sleep clench inhibitors.
