Dental Nightguards at Advanced Dental Partners

Dental Nightguard

Dental nightguards, also known as occlusal splints or bite guards, are custom-made oral appliances designed to alleviate various dental issues caused by teeth grinding (bruxism) and jaw clenching during sleep. These devices serve as a protective barrier between the upper and lower teeth, cushioning their impact and preventing the excessive wear and damage that can result from these habits.

Nightguards are beneficial for individuals experiencing symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, worn enamel, and disrupted sleep due to bruxism. They are typically made from durable materials that can withstand the forces exerted during grinding and clenching. Dentists create nightguards by taking impressions of the patient’s teeth, ensuring a comfortable and precise fit.

Wearing a dental nightguard not only safeguards teeth and reduces discomfort but also helps preserve the overall structure of the jaw. By effectively distributing the forces exerted during nighttime grinding, nightguards play a crucial role in preventing more serious dental issues over time. Consulting a dentist is essential to determine whether a nightguard is appropriate and to ensure proper fitting and usage for maximum effectiveness.
