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.
