Creating Beautiful Smiles

Dental Nightguards

Many men and women experience dental damage from grinding and clenching their teeth at night. This painful habit can cause worn down or broken teeth and jaw, neck, and head pain. While bruxism cannot be stopped, the damage it causes can be prevented.

Dental night guards, also known as occlusal guards, place a barrier between your upper and lower teeth to prevent them from clenching or grinding.

What Can Dental Night Guards Do?

Reduce Tooth Damage

Reduce Tooth Damage

Bruxism is a destructive habit that can result in tooth or filling fracture, which then requires dental work to repair. Night guards help prevent the need for future restoration procedures by protecting the teeth from chipping and enamel loss.

Improve Sleep

Improve Sleep

Unfortunately, many men and women do not know that they clench or grind their teeth at night until they experience a problem. Wearing a night guard will improve sleep patterns by preventing headaches, easing jaw stress, reducing snoring, and promoting peace of mind.

Prevent Future Expenses

Prevent Future Expenses

Dental restorations following bruxism-related damage can be painful and expensive. Dental night guards are an economical alternative to restoration procedures or preventative orthodontic treatments.

Causes of Bruxism

Although it is not known what causes bruxism, an increase in stress, anxiety, smoking, and alcohol use, or an abnormal or crooked bite, may contribute to it.

Symptoms of Teeth Grinding

Symptoms of bruxism include:

  • Excessive wear
  • Tooth chipping or fracture
  • Loss of enamel
  • Facial or tooth pain
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint)
  • Fatigue

Custom-Fitted Night Guards

While there is no cure for teeth grinding, you can prevent bruxism-related problems by protecting your teeth with a dental night guard. Custom-fitted night guards offer the dual benefit of comfort and superior protection. An impression will be taken of your teeth to ensure that your night guard perfectly matches your unique alignment. Since this mold is taken from your existing bite, it will be comfortable and non-damaging. These are acrylic and BPA-free.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are store-bought night guards the same?
A. You can find a ready-made night guard at nearly any drug store. While these guards are cheaper, they are not fitted to your unique bite. Therefore, these night guards can be uncomfortable, may not protect your teeth that well, and may contribute to the shifting of your teeth if worn for an extended period. If you wear a store-brand night guard, contact Dr. Tomazin to make sure it is a good fit.
How long will my night guard last?
A. Night guards can last for several years as long as they are cared for. Night guards should be cleaned every day and kept in a protective case when they are not being worn.
Do I have to change any of my eating or hygiene habits?
A. Night guards only need to be worn when you sleep and will not affect your day-to-day activities or alter your eating and hygiene habits. Night guards should be removed and cleaned every morning to ensure that they last.
Will insurance cover my night guard?
A. Many insurance companies cover night guards, at least to a certain point. Check with your insurance provider to see if night guard may be covered. However, even without insurance, a night guard is economically beneficial, as it may prevent the need for additional dental work.
