Night guards (also called occlusal guards, splints or bruxing appliances) can prevent damage to teeth and dental repair – saving the time and expense of fixing problems associated with grinding teeth or clenching the jaw muscles. They can also be used to treat patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction or pain (TMD) or people suffering from discomfort and fatigue in the jaw or facial muscles.
Night guards are made of rigid or semi-rigid materials such as laboratory-processed acrylic. They are generally made to be worn over the biting surfaces of the upper or lower teeth, and can be easily inserted or removed by the patient.
Investing in a night guard may be your first step towards negating the need for future dental implants or dental repairs.
