Sleep Guard (Occlusal Guard)
People may often be unaware that they are grinding their teeth at night. "Bruxing" or grinding of teeth can cause irreversible damage to your teeth as well as aggravate your jaws and TMJ. Wearing of teeth may cause sensitivity, cavities, cracks and chips in teeth, bite problems, as well as an unpleasant esthetic appearance. If you have had major dental work done such veneers or porcelain crowns, it is also a good idea to protect your investment by wearing an occlusal guard at night. If you wake up feeling soreness in your jaw muscles, sore teeth, with headaches, chances are you are grinding or clenching during sleep.
We can fabricate a night guard for you so that is comfortable and easy to wear.
