Night Guards & Sports Guards 

Protect Your Teeth From Clenching and Grinding

The Best In Comfort and Protection

If you suffer from teeth grinding or clenching, you might want to consider wearing a night guard, which offers the best protection against bruxism as you sleep. Designed with opposing grooves, it ensures a natural resting bite to avoid damage.

Here are some of the benefits of wearing a night guard.

  • Prevents Tooth Damage: Teeth clenching and grinding that goes untreated will eventually result in the wearing down of the enamel causing extreme sensitivity, fracturing, cavities, and damage to existing restorations. Wearing a custom-fit night guard when you sleep can prevent costly and painful complications of bruxism-related damage.
  • Prevents TMJ Dysfunction: TMJ issues affect the muscles that are used while chewing, the joint, and its related ligaments and tendons. Bruxism is one of the factors that can cause or contribute to TMJ. Wearing a night guard can help prevent these disorders from developing.
  • Relief From Tension And Pain: With regular and consistent use of a custom night guard, you can reduce the amount of tension on your muscles and joints and find much-needed relief from pain.
  • Reduces The Occurrence Of Headaches: If you often wake up with a headache, particularly around your temples, bruxism should be looked into as a possible cause. A night guard can help relieve the headaches that are associated with this condition.
  • Prevents Crown Damage: The crown is the unprotected part of the tooth that is located above the jaw muscles. Teeth clenching and grinding can cause the crown to crack, but a night guard will absorb that force.
  • Improves Sleep Quality: Custom night guards will help reduce the pain and discomfort in your head, neck, and mouth to boost your quantity and quality of sleep.

 

 

Types of Night Guards

There are 3 main types of mouth-guards on the market; these include:

  • Stock over-the-counter teeth guards: They’re inexpensive, but they provide no customization, the least protection, and are difficult to wear.
  • Boil and bite guards:They’re also inexpensive and adapt somewhat to the shape of your teeth, but the fit is still rather poor and because the material is not long-lasting, this type of guard requires replacement frequently.
  • Custom guards:These are constructed from an impression of your teeth by a professional dental lab and are fully customized for a precise fit.  Made from professional materials using a specialized process, these guards offer the best protection against bruxism.

The night guards provided by our office are professionally-made custom guards, that deliver the best in comfort and protection. If you think you may be experiencing nighttime bruxism, contact us today to schedule a consultation to determine your treatment options.
