Night Guards

Many people require night guards orthodontic treatment because they grind or clench their teeth at night. This is called bruxism, and it affects approximately 15% of Americans. This condition can wear down your teeth and cause chips and cracks. To prevent damage to teeth, your dentist may recommend a night guard.

While you can purchase a night guard over the counter, a custom-made one from your dentist will fit better and be more comfortable. Night guards are made by taking impressions of your mouth and sending them to a dental lab to create your device.

Teeth clenching is often caused by excessive stress. By learning how to relax – through meditation, professional therapy or some other methods – you can cut down on nighttime teeth grinding.
