What is a night guard?
Nightguards are a protective solution for patients that subconsciously grind and clench their teeth while they sleep. These custom-made accessories work as a soft barrier between your teeth to prevent painful clenching and grinding overnight. When biting down, the night guard eases the tension between your jaw muscles and shields your teeth from enamel erosion. Wearing your custom-molded night guard can alleviate the painful side effects of the clenching and grinding, so you can sleep with ease.
