What Are Dental Night Guards?

Dental night guards are a convenient and inexpensive treatment for people who are prone to teeth grinding and clenching. The appliance is worn during the night on the upper and lower teeth preventing you from grinding your teeth while sleeping and damaging the enamel.

Benefits of Dental Night Guards

Teeth grinding and clenching can cause significant damage to your teeth’s protective layer, the enamel. This can lead to chipped and cracked teeth, strained jaw muscles, extreme jaw pain, tooth sensitivity and even headaches.

Wearing a dental night guard while you sleep protects your oral health and smile from the continuous wear caused by involuntary teeth grinding. Quality night guards have soft, dual-laminate materials that prevent injury in the mouth.

Custom-made night guards that fit your teeth precisely are the greatest, as they ensure comfort by completely matching your detention. You may also be grinding your teeth during the day without knowing. At Central Hutt Dental, we can even create custom-made mouthguards for daytime wear. You can wear them if you suffer from bruxism. We have protective mouthguards available for those that play contact sport.
