Night Guard

What Is A Night Guard?

Night guards are special oral appliances commonly used to treat teeth clenching or grinding problems. These guards are custom-made and usually made of flexible material that fits onto the upper and lower teeth. Their function is to prevent tooth wear and allow relaxation of the jaw joints by keeping the jaw and teeth in a harmonious position.

Who Should Use Night Guards?

Night guards are typically recommended for individuals experiencing teeth clenching or grinding issues. Additionally, those experiencing jaw joint disorders or tooth wear problems can also use night guards. However, it's important for them to be used under the recommendation and supervision of a dentist in every case.

How Should Night Guards be Used?

Guards should be worn every night during sleep. Care should be taken to clean both the teeth and the guard before and after use. Guards should be regularly checked by a dentist and adjusted if necessary.
