Night guards are similar to the rubber mouth guards used for contact sports, but they are specially designed and fitted for use at night as you sleep in order to prevent a list of possible issues. Night guards are usually used to prevent bruxism, which is the night time grinding of the teeth. Night guards are also excellent for reducing the symptoms of sleep apnea, allowing you to rest easy. Many Americans suffer form some sort of trouble falling asleep, and many times your teeth and jaw are the reason. Those who grind their teeth during the day may be doing it at night without realizing.
Your dentist will take measurements and scans of the inside of your mouth so that we can make sure your night guard will fit perfectly. Some night guards are adjustable, making them an even more comfortable choice.
