What Are Night Guards?

Night guards are an oral appliance used to separate your top and bottom teeth as you sleep, which helps prevent unnecessary damage for patients with bruxism, a condition that causes unconscious clenching of the jaw. These appliances are completely customized to your mouth and are removable for ease of use.

Those who have bruxism typically experience:

  • Jaw, ear or facial pain
  • Tension or tightness in the jaw
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Chipped, cracked or warm teeth
  • Reduced tooth enamel
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Indentations on the tongue

Symptoms of bruxism are often caused by stress and may be alleviated through lifestyle changes and other solutions.

If you notice any of these symptoms, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our dentist, to see if you may benefit from a night guard to protect your mouth and teeth. Dr. Zia Rizvi welcomes you to ask any questions you may have about bruxism and how night guards may help you.
