What are Night Guards?

Night guards are protective mouth appliances intended to be used while you sleep to prevent injuries resulting from teeth grinding. Our team can create custom night guards for enhanced comfort while you sleep.

Why Do I Grind My Teeth at Night?

There are several possible triggers for teeth grinding. Stress and anxiety are some of the most likely culprits if you do not have any dental anomalies. However, abnormal bites or crooked teeth are also a strong indicator of a propensity for teeth grinding.

What are the Dangers of Teeth Grinding?

Grinding your teeth once or twice might not leave any permanent damage, but it may lead to serious dental health concerns if the problem proves to be persistent. Some of the most common issues caused by teeth grinding include:
