Do Your Teeth Move Around In Your Mouth While You Sleep?

Posted on 8/9/2021 by Dr. Nick Raptou
Do Your Teeth Move Around In Your Mouth While You Sleep?A lot of things can happen in your mouth when you sleep. Maybe you have noticed subtle changes in your smile upon waking. A new gap between your front teeth or bottom teeth overlapping where they haven't before may be an indication that your teeth move around while you sleep. Perhaps your teeth have shifted.

If you suspect that your teeth are moving around at night, the best thing you can do is contact Raptou Family Dental for an appointment. Our professional team can help you to understand more fully what might be happening in your mouth while you sleep.

Are Your Teeth Shifting at Night?

Teeth shift for many reasons and often do so at night. Periodontal disease is a disease that affects your gums or the bone beneath your teeth. When those tissues or bones are diseased, your teeth can shift. We offer treatments for periodontal health at our Columbus, OH practice.

Another reason your teeth may be shifting could be the lack of a retainer or mouth guard. If you grind your teeth, your teeth may move around. This puts pressure on your teeth which can make them shift. Lastly, if you lost a tooth, the adjacent teeth may shift to accommodate the gap and take advantage of the extra space.

Contact Us Today

You may not understand why your teeth are shifting. However, if you contact us and make an appointment, we can look at your mouth and deduce what may be happening. If you think your teeth are shifting, it is important to make an appointment before the problem gets worse.
