Night guards can help prevent teeth grinding and protect the enamel from permanent damage.
We can provide custom night guards to help prevent your teeth from grinding against each other when you sleep. While people may not grind their teeth during the day, they may end up doing it subconsciously. Due to this, people may not even realize they are grinding their teeth until they experience symptoms.
Fortunately, a night guard is an easy-to-use customizable fix for this. First, we will need to determine if you need a night guard through various tests and an examination. If the enamel of the teeth is worn down from constant grinding, then we will recommend a night guard.
If you notice waking up with soreness in your teeth, jaw, face, or headaches, then you may be suffering from teeth grinding. A major benefit of wearing a night guard is that you don't have to wear it during the day. This way, most people won't even know you wear the night guard.
However, we will need to make sure the night guard is a proper fit. Thus, we will take a mold of your teeth to help customize the night guard. Once complete, we will have you come into our office so we can place them on your teeth.
We will then go over proper care techniques for your night guard. When it comes to oral hygiene, it is crucial to brush your teeth before placing the night guard in your mouth around bedtime. Remaining plaque on the teeth can stick to the grooves in the night guard.
In the morning, be sure to rinse the night guard out with water before placing it back in the case.
