Night guards (or occlusal guards) are made to protect your teeth against night-time grinding and clenching (bruxism). Patients who are prone to grinding and clenching often suffer from significant tooth decay and damage, which leads to diminished life expectancy and function in your teeth. By providing a barrier between your lower and upper teeth, night guards will help protect your teeth from clenching and grinding.
At Smiles by Bigelow, we will provide you with a custom-fit guard to help protect your teeth. This guard will fit comfortably in your mouth and make it easier to breathe while you are sleeping. We invite you to call us today to learn more about how night guards can help alleviate your bruxism pain.
