Night Guard Near You
Grinding your teeth could increase the risks of developing TMJ, tooth sensitivity, tooth wear, or even serious damage to your teeth. Teeth grinding, which is also known as “bruxism” most commonly happens at night. Nightguards are the best way to keep your teeth safe and healthy while you’re sleeping. These are custom-made trays that help prevent your teeth from grinding and also help prevent issues such as enamel damage.
How a Night Guard Near You are Made
Night guards are custom made from the impressions made of your top and bottom teeth. We send these impressions to our dental lab, where your night guards will be fabricated to fit perfectly over your top teeth while you sleep. Custom night guards not only protect your teeth from grinding but also reposition your lower jaw into a comfortable position.
How to Care for your Night Guard:
- After each use, clean your night guard with cold water and a toothbrush.
- Store your night guard in the case provided by your dentist to allow air circulation and also to prevent any damage.
- Avoid washing your night-guard with hot water or exposing it to direct sunlight to prevent distortion of its shape.
- It is natural for your night guard to show signs of wear throughout its use. If you detect and wear, tears, or hole, contact us to have it examined.
