Night guards are usually recommended for patients who suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding, at night. Most patients do not realize they suffer from bruxism, which often leads to damaged or sensitive teeth. Our friendly dentists can help diagnose this condition and recommend treatment to help mitigate it, such as a night guard, which is an oral appliance worn at night. If you are unsure if you have bruxism, some symptoms of teeth grinding or clenching include:
Severe soreness in the jaw, face or ear
The muscles in your jaw feeling tired once you wake up
Tension headaches or migraines
Chipped, flat or cracked teeth
Excessively worn tooth enamel
Tongue indentations from your teeth
Night guards are custom oral appliances that match your bite and fit comfortably over your teeth for a nonintrusive solution while you sleep. They protect your teeth from grinding against each other and help relieve the symptoms experienced by those with bruxism.
