    What Is A Night Guard And How Does It Work

    A night guard is a special dental appliance that fits snugly over teeth and creates a barrier to prevent teeth-grinding or jaw-clenching. At our Houston, TX, office, we fabricate night guards with resilient materials that form a cushioning layer between teeth. Regular use of a night guard can help prevent several common symptoms of bruxism, including tooth damage, gum recession, jaw tightness, headaches, and tooth sensitivity.

    By preventing the teeth from grinding against each other, this appliance relieves jaw tension, alleviates headaches, and preserves the structure of your natural teeth. It also protects your dental work (fillings, crowns, or bridges) that may result due to long-term bruxism.

    Benefits Of Night Guards

    Bruxism or teeth grinding can affect your sleep and oral health. That’s why we offer special night guards in Houston, TX, that can help in many ways, including:

    • They protect your tooth surfaces from erosion or damage caused by bruxism.
    • They relieve the pressure on your jaw muscles and joints, reducing pain and discomfort.
    • Using this device can improve the quality of your sleep.
    • By preventing teeth grinding, they lower the chance of gum recession and oral tissue injury.
    • They also help prevent tension-type headaches and TMJ disorders.

    Get Our Custom-Fit Night Guards

    The procedure of getting a personalized night guard at our dental office is easy and convenient. Typically, it takes two appointments. In the first visit, we will discuss your symptoms and evaluate your mouth to determine the extent of damage from bruxism.

    For a custom-fit night guard, we will take impressions or digital scans of your teeth and send them to a lab. The lab technicians will use these measurements to create an appliance that fits perfectly over your teeth. When it is ready, we will call you for a second appointment to check its fit in your mouth.

    At the end of the procedure, our team will provide instructions to wear your night guard and maintain its cleanliness. If any issue arises, you can visit our clinic for effective solutions.
