Night Guards

Do you clench or grind your teeth at night?  A night guard may be your answer!

A night guard is a retainer-like plastic appliance that can be worn on either the top or the bottom row of teeth. It protects the teeth from the pressure of clenching and grinding by providing a cushion between the upper and lower teeth.

A night guard can be a simple, affordable solution for protecting your teeth and jaws from the damaging effects of nighttime clenching and grinding by helping to relax the muscles in the jaw.  Once we determine that you're a good candidate for a night guard, we will create one that's custom-made for your mouth, and you can rest soundly again.
