A night guard, an essential tool in dental care, serves a pivotal role in addressing the issue of bruxism, the involuntary habit of grinding or clenching teeth during sleep. This condition often goes unnoticed, as it primarily occurs while you sleep, making the need for effective prevention all the more crucial.

Common indicators of nighttime teeth grinding include:

  • Chronic jaw, facial and ear pain
  • Waking up with a tired or tense sensation in the jaw
  • Frequent tension headaches and migraines
  • Excessive tooth wear
  • Chipped, flattened and cracked teeth
  • Exposed tooth enamel
  • Heightened tooth sensitivity
  • Indentations on the sides of the tongue

A custom night guard is an effective solution to mitigate these issues. Tailored to your unique dental structure, a night guard ensures a comfortable fit while offering protection against teeth grinding, blocking the biting forces that cause the damage so you can maintain your oral health and function. This preventive measure allows for peaceful sleep while safeguarding your teeth from further damage.
