What is a night guard?
A night guard is created to match the shape of your teeth and gums. It looks like a teeth whitening tray, comfortably fitting over your teeth and gums, as it is customized. If you struggle with teeth grinding, regularly wake up with a headache, or must protect your teeth from the wear associated with constant grinding and clenching, a night guard is likely the ideal solution.
How does a night guard work?
Bruxism is the medical term for grinding teeth while sleeping. A night guard can relieve TMJ and jaw clenching while keeping your jaw and teeth appropriately aligned while you sleep. It also keeps the teeth separated to avoid tooth surface damage and wear.
