Wear Custom Night Guards for Comfortable Protection
Visit Your Friendly Family Dentist in Morgan Hill
If you are inadvertently damaging your teeth by grinding them in your sleep, your family dentist may recommend you wear a night guard. Also known as occlusal appliances or dental splints, these custom oral devices help manage issues that can cause your teeth to wear out. Severe teeth grinding at night (bruxism) is quite common and typically associated with stress, migraines, uneven bite, misaligned teeth, or a sleep disorder. While there are many over-the-counter solutions available, custom night guards from your dentist will offer the best protection and fit comfortably. They can also help reduce jaw and facial pain in individuals suffering from temporomandibular disorders (TMD).
Do you wake up in the morning with pain in your teeth, a dull headache or a sore jaw? These are signs that indicate you could be grinding your teeth at night. Schedule a checkup at Floss Family Dentistry. We can examine your teeth for damage and design suitable protection with a night guard.
Oral Health Benefits of Night Guards
These oral protection devices are custom made for your specific condition. Your family dentist will determine whether you engage in heavy, moderate or light grinding and create an appropriate appliance. By wearing dental night guards, you can enjoy oral health benefits such as:
- Preventing enamel from wearing out
- Lowering the risk of tooth fractures, gum inflammation and recession
- Reducing teeth sensitivity that results from bruxism
- Reducing wear and tear caused by grinding and clenching
- Relieving ear aches, sore jaws, facial pain caused by TMD and tension headaches
You can count on our friendly team of dental professionals to protect your oral health and improve your smile.
