Dental Night Guards
Bruxism is tooth grinding and tooth clenching. In most people, bruxism is mild enough not to be a health problem; however, some people suffer from significant bruxism that can later become a problem. Bruxism often occurs during sleep and can even occur during short naps. Bruxism is a common problem, it is estimated that 30-40 million Americans are affected by it.
If you’re a good candidate for a night guard, we will create one that’s custom-made for your mouth. A professionally made night guard for teeth is composed of soft material and slides over one row of your teeth. Once your dental night guard is in place, you can sleep soundly knowing that even if you do grind your teeth once you’re asleep, your upper and lower teeth will no longer make contact.
