Night guards

Night guards are available for patients who grind their teeth (bruxism). It evens out the pressure and creates a barrier between your upper and lower teeth to protect them from grinding. Our custom made night guards will protect your teeth and keep them safe as you sleep. Night guards can improve your sleep, reduce headaches and jaw joint problems and prevent sensitivity on your teeth.

  • Rhythmic contractions of the jaw muscles
