Stop damaging your teeth. Protect them with a Night Guard.
Teeth clenching or grinding your teeth while you sleep may cause irreversible damage to your teeth. A night guard could be a simple and affordable solution for protecting your teeth and jaw from the damaging effects of bruxism (clenching & grinding). A night guard is a custom-made horseshoe-shaped (or retainer-like), plastic, appliance with shallow borders. It is designed to keep the upper and lower teeth from touching, and can be worn on either the top or bottom teeth. A night guard can help reduce clenching, grinding, and TMJ (jaw joint) problems by helping to relax the muscles in the jaw. Severe clenching and grinding (bruxism) can cause jaw pain, tense muscles, headaches, and excessive wear on the teeth. It is estimated that 30-40 million Americans are affected by bruxism. We can make you a custom-fitted, comfortable night guard.
