Night Guard

Help Maintain your teeth and prevent TMJ problems:

Do you wake up with an aching jaw or tooth?

Have you been told you grind your teeth?  

Do you have cracked teeth?

If so, you may be grinding your teeth.

Since tooth grinding erodes the enamel, it can cause the tooth to become very sensitive to foods and other materials. If you find that you have some cuts on the sides of your tongue and on the inside of your cheeks, it may be due to teeth grinding.

Sometimes this can be caused by certain medications or stress. In those cases, there are medical alternatives which may help.  A very common alternative is a dental mouth guard.

A night guard, also known as a mouth guard, is a dental appliance that is used to prevent injury or cracked teeth and fillings that occur while sleeping.

After a painless examination, we take two simple impressions and sent them to a lab which will construct the night guard that can either be for the top or bottom teeth.

What to expect when using a night guard:

  • Night guards are very comfortable and don’t cause any discomfort as you wear them. We design the night guard to fit your teeth perfectly with no space for movement. This makes them comfortable and easy to use. This also means that you won’t have any difficulty getting sleep while using a night guard. Since the night guard is made of a sturdy material, it cannot injure your mouth in any way.
  • If you experience any pain or uneasiness when wearing the night guard, we are happy to examine your current guard and provide you with a better- fitting night guard.
  • We will also give you a comprehensive description of how to wear, store, and clean your night guard.
