Teeth grinding can result in premature dental wear and contribute to TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder.
A night guard is a simple dental appliance that is worn while you sleep to align your jaw and prevent grinding. If you suffer from TMJ disorder or grind your teeth while you sleep, we can take an impression of your teeth, design a mouth guard based on your specific needs, and have it fabricated in our laboratory.
Once complete, you will return to our office to have the mouth guard fitted (to ensure a proper fit) and given instructions on its use. Made from flexible plastic and designed to fit flawlessly over your teeth, your night guard will have little to no impact on your day-to-day routine, but will have an appreciable difference on your oral health.
