More About Night Guards
A night guard is a custom-made thin, transparent device that covers the biting surface of your teeth during night-time. It is used to prevent excessive night-time grinding (bruxism). Night guards are a proactive approach to protecting your natural teeth, existing crowns, bridges, implants, and veneers from pain or fracture.
Night guards can prevent chronic headaches due to tooth clenching or grinding, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), teeth wear, tooth pain and crown cracking. If you’re waking up with headaches or an aching jaw or you notice clicking noise when you chew or yawn, you may need a night guard.
Grinding is caused by chronic stress, an unbalanced bite, muscle tension, misaligned, or missing teeth. If left untreated, grinding can wear down the surface of your teeth and increase the risk for tooth decay and gum diseases. Night guards prevent grinding and further damage to your teeth.
