Bruxism & Night Guards

Night Guards Offer a Comfortable Solution to Bruxism

We can help protect your smile from teeth grinding with custom-fitting night guards.

Bruxism, which is the grinding, gnashing and clenching of your teeth, is a relatively common problem for children and adults. Because bruxism frequently occurs during sleep, many people do not realize they are suffering from the condition until they damage their teeth.

We offer night guards that protect your teeth from pain and damage, so your teeth are healthy and strong for years to come.

What are symptoms of Bruxism?

  • Tooth pain or aching sensation
  • Headaches upon waking
  • Tight or painful jaw
  • Gum irritation or damage
  • Temporomandibular joint dysfunction
  • Tooth damage such as fracturing, flattening chipping, broken fillings and worn enamel

Bruxism can be the result of a number of different factors. While stress is often a culprit, the behavior may develop due to uneven teeth alignment, certain neuromuscular conditions or diseases, or even specific types of medication. Our team can provide the best line of defense: custom fitting night guards to protect your teeth from damage, pain and the myriad of other side effects. We offer traditional night guards as well as NTI night guards. Unlike traditional night guards, which cover all teeth, the NTI device only covers the front two teeth. By placing pressure on the front teeth, NTI devices should reduce the severity of involuntary jaw contractions.

Whether you opt for a traditional night guard or the NTI, our team will design a device to safely and comfortably accommodate your bite and needs.

I had always wanted, a pretty smile. I consulted with Dr. Cakmes for advice. He guided me through the whole process and made sure I was comfortable at all times. He and his caring staff did an excellent job and I’m very thankful I chose his practice for my dental work.

We went to see Dr. Cakmes and he said, “No problem.” I would come into his office and the staff would treat me like a person with good teeth. They made me feel so comfortable. The world is filled with sacrifices, insecurities, and problems that are out of our control. I am so grateful that Dr. Cakmes, his staff, and my parents made my teeth one less insecurity.

Nancy Chaffin

I talk to Dr. Cakmes and his wonderful staff. They spent time finding out what I wanted, taking measurements and discussing the possibilities. It is amazing to me how gentle and kind everyone was. I now have beautiful, white teeth that I proudly display. In less time than I thought possible, I have the smile I had always dreamed of.

Danielle G.

Dr. Cakmes is the best dentist I have ever been to! When I moved here 5 years ago I hadn't been to the dentist in forever. I knew I needed a lot of work done. I was nervous and scared. From my first step through the door I felt welcomed and at ease. Dr. Cakmes is so gentle and his staff is beyond fantastic and encouraging. Over the past five years I have had a lot of work done on my smile and I couldn't be more happy with the care and treatment I've received! I would highly recommend them!!

Kathy McMahan

Dr. Cakmes has been my dentist for almost 20 years. In addition to taking care of my basic dental needs, he gave me a great smile by capping eight of my front, upper teeth. He and his staff are skilled, dedicated and caring people. Irma cleans my teeth and does a completely thorough job. She is friendly and very careful. Carol, in reception, always knows me when she sees me and always greets me with a warm hello. I recommend Dr. Cakmes and his staff to anyone who is looking for a dentist.
