Dental Nightguards

Preventing the Grinding of Teeth at Night

dental nightgaurds Dental nightguards are type of appliance that can prevent patients from grinding their teeth at night. Bruxism is the medical term for forceful clenching and/or grinding of your teeth. It's considered a major cause of tooth problems because if untreated can lead to jaw pain, headaches, tooth pain, fractured fillings and broken teeth. Some patients will say that they notice signs of wear on their front or back teeth but aren't always aware of the cause but they obviously know something is wrong.

Most people are completely unaware they are doing it because it's often done during sleep, but once the idea of clenching or grinding is brought up many people will actually catch themselves doing it during the day as well. Dental nightguards help to provide a cushion between the upper and lower teeth so that grinding does not occur.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Nightguards?

Dental nightguards are ideal for all patients who grind their teeth at night or complain of headaches, waking up in the middle of the night, soreness of the jaw, or symptoms with certain teeth and they don't have an explanation for what the source of the problem is.

If you notice wear and tear on your teeth, are experiencing any symptoms that you suspect might be from clenching or grinding, or if your spouse complains of the noise you make when you grind your teeth while sleeping, don't be surprised if we tell you dental nightguards are in order.

What Happens During Dental Nightguard Procedures?

We will take impressions of your teeth to make a custom fitted nightguard device for you. Unlike the typical boil-and-bite dental nightguards you'd buy in a store, our nightguards are made just for you to provide a superior fit. The device is comfortable and provides a cushion between the upper and lower teeth. In order for the nightguard to work effectively, it has to be worn every night while you sleep. Dental nightguards will help keep your teeth protected and healthy.

If you'd like to come into our office to have a dental nightguard made for you, call us today so we can further assist you.
