Mouth Guards for Teeth Grinding

Give Us a Call: (203) 265-7118

Our night guards are professionally custom-made to help prevent bruxism (teeth grinding) and help to keep the jaw in proper alignment while your jaw is at rest. By wearing a night guard, your upper and lower teeth will no longer make contact. This helps stop the grinding that can cause serious damage and pain. Bruxism wears down teeth and can cause jaw disorders, damaged teeth, and headaches.

Signs you may grind your teeth include:

  • Snoring or sleep apnea
  • Flattened or fractured teeth
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw pain or soreness
  • Sore or tired jaw muscles
  • Dull headaches or earaches
  • Indentations on your tongue and/or cheek from chewing

Our custom-made night guards will help prevent bruxism and its painful and destructive effects. Many patients have reported that wearing their night guard relieved them from headaches and tooth sensitivity symptoms while also protecting their teeth from further damage. Tooth grinding is just as destructive to teeth as other dental diseases, such as cavities and gum disease, so it is important to catch it early and prevent further damage.
