Dental Nightguards

Preventing the Grinding of Teeth at Night

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.
