Mouth and night guards are devices that help protect your teeth from damage caused by grinding or clenching. These guards are custom-made for each patient and can be worn during sleep or during the day, depending on the individual’s needs.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be time to consider getting a night guard:
- Teeth Grinding: If you find yourself grinding your teeth at night or during the day, a night guard can help prevent further damage to your teeth. Grinding can cause your teeth to become worn down or even crack over time.
- Headaches on a Regular Basis: Headaches can be caused by a variety of factors, including teeth grinding. If you experience headaches on a regular basis, it may be worth considering a night guard.
- Sensitivity of the Tooth: Tooth sensitivity can be caused by a number of factors, including grinding. A night guard can help protect your teeth and reduce sensitivity.
- Cracked Enamel: If you have cracked or chipped enamel, a night guard can help prevent further damage and protect your teeth from additional wear and tear.
