Dental Night Guards

Dental night guards or mouthguards are coverings worn over teeth and often used to protect teeth from injury from teeth grinding and during sports.

Nightguards help in the prevention of tooth grinding, jaw clenching and wearing away your tooth enamel. It is a clear custom fit guard that is worn day or night that is recommended when you have signs of foreshortened teeth, flat chewing surfaces or chipping. It prevents further enamel loss by acting as a barrier between your top and bottom teeth. This allows you to wear down the nightguard rather than your losing your protective layer of tooth enamel.

What is Night Guards?

Clenching or grinding your teeth while you’re asleep is pretty common among children and adults. But when it starts to cause headaches, tooth or jaw pain, or damage to your teeth, it’s time to talk to your dentist about bruxism. A common treatment for sleep bruxism is dental night guards.

Why is it necessary to use Night Guards?

If you have a habit of grinding your teeth, this habit will cause you problems over time, the most important of which is the wear and tear of your teeth. The advantages of using Night Guard are:

• Protect teeth against abrasion or cracking

• Reduction of jaw muscle contraction and cramping, which in turn reduces jaw pain and treats temporomandibular joint problems.
Open the airways during the night and thus improve sleep breathing and reduce snoring
