Experiencing discomfort due to teeth grinding (bruxism) or jaw clenching at night? Our dentist and team offers custom-fitted night guards as a solution to protect your teeth and improve your sleep quality. Night guards are an effective treatment for preventing the wear and damage caused by bruxism and can also help alleviate associated jaw pain and headaches.

Understanding Night Guards

A night guard is a custom-made appliance that fits over your teeth. It acts as a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth, preventing them from grinding against each other. This not only protects the enamel of your teeth but also helps to reduce strain on the jaw muscles and joints.

Benefits of Custom Night Guards

  • Prevents teeth grinding and clenching, protecting your teeth from wear and damage
  • Reduces the risk of developing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders
  • Alleviates discomfort such as headaches and jaw pain
  • Improves sleep patterns by reducing disturbances caused by bruxism
  • Custom fit for comfort and effectiveness

The Process of Getting a Night Guard

When you come to our office for a night guard, we start with a thorough examination to assess your needs. An impression of your teeth is taken to ensure that the night guard fits perfectly. This impression is then used to create your custom night guard, which will be ready for you to wear within a few days.
