You only get one smile, so it’s important that you take steps to protect your teeth. If you’re prone to grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw, we may recommend that you use a dental night guard for protection.
People who grind their teeth at night can often benefit from wearing a dental night guard. Night guards are made out of a laminate or acrylic material that is flexible. Once in place, the night guard acts as a cushion, distributing the pressure from grinding and clenching away from the biting surface. It also reduces friction. These benefits can help to minimize the risk of the teeth becoming damaged due to grinding and may ease symptoms of bruxism. We can help you determine if a dental night guard is right for you.
