Unconscious grinding of the teeth during sleep is a condition known as bruxism. They can also help reduce migraine pain, prevent tension-type headache pain, reduce the damage and tension caused by grinding and/or clenching teeth during sleep, help prevent jaw disorders by relieving pressure, and prevent the development of TMD (temporomandibular disorder). If you are grinding your teeth in your sleep most nights or having any of these problems, you should contact our office for a custom fit night guard.
A night guard is a removable dental appliance that is similar to an athletic mouth guard. It provides a barrier between your top and bottom teeth to protect them while you sleep.
Stevenson Dental Care will custom fit your night guard to ensure your comfort and safety. Night guards can protect your teeth from wear, gum irritation, enamel damage, and jaw pain.
