Night Guards

night guards

Night guards are removable dental appliances carefully molded to fit the upper or lower arches of teeth.  The Night Guard is designed for patients that have headaches or facial pain, grind and clench their teeth, have had cosmetic or restorative dentistry, want to keep their teeth properly aligned, are preparing for restorative work, have joints that pop and click, have cracks, fracture lines or weakened teeth. 

They are used to protect tooth and restoration surfaces, manage mandibular (jaw) dysfunction, and stabilize occlusion or create space prior to restoration procedures.  People prone to nocturnal bruxism, or nighttime clenching, should routinely wear occlusal guard at night.  If you fit in any of these categories, please ask us how we may provide you a custom fit occlusal guard.
