Night Guards

Night Guards

If you grind your teeth at night, you may be a candidate for night guards. These custom-made devices can protect you from damaging your teeth and jaw. It’s important to note that not all night mouthguards are the same, so your dentist will help determine which type is right for you.

 What are Night Guards?

If you grind your teeth at night, you may be a candidate for night guards. These custom-made guards can protect you from damaging your teeth and jaw. It’s important to note that not all night mouthguards are the same, so your dentist will help determine which type is right for you.

Mouth guards are worn primarily by athletes, those with Temporomandibular joint dysfunction pain, or those who grind their teeth while they sleep (bruxism). They come in different types and can be used with or without braces.

Mouth guards are commonly made out of durable materials like plastic or acrylic. They may be custom-fitted to your mouth by a dentist. The type of night mouth guard best suited for your needs depends on several factors.

Why do you need Night Guards?

Grinding or clenching your teeth can cause damage to your teeth, jaw, and face. Night Guards are a great way to prevent this damage. 

Night guards are designed to keep teeth in a comfortable and natural position. We recommend that they’re worn while sleeping, so they don’t interfere with eating or drinking foods and beverages during the day.
