NIGHT GUARD

Do you suffer from headaches, jaw joint pain, or neck and shoulder pain?
You may, without knowing it, be clenching and grinding your teeth as you sleep.

Night GuardTeeth grinding and/or clenching causes extensive wear on your teeth, and can cause the facial muscles to overwork and becomes sore. Close to 20% of the adult population engage in this behavior as it is a common response to a stressful life.

Forceful biting when not chewing can cause the jaw to move out of alignment, creating more long-term problems. TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems can occur, manifesting in pain in the joint, and/or pain up the side of the face or around to the back of the neck. A weak TMJ joint will make clicking and popping sounds when opening and closing the mouth. Headaches can be caused by a TMJ disorder. One out of 10 Americans suffer with frequest headaches. In the U.S. consumers spend over a half a billion dollars each year for medications to remedy headaches.

Wearing a night guard often lessens these problems. It is an oral appliance that is worn in your mouth as you sleep. It is used to move the jaw forward and/or hold the mouth open. In this way, a Night Guard correctly fitted by our team will keep you from snoring and grinding your teeth.
