Night Guards

Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. To help our patients most comfortably avoid this, we customize night guards to their bite. A night guard acts as a cushion between the top and bottom dental arches while the other creates more space between the front teeth to prevent the top and lower jaw from touching.


What are the causes of teeth grinding?

  • Stress or anxiety

  • Obstructive sleep apnea

  • Certain medications or recreational drugs

What are the causes of snoring?

  • Sleeping on your back

  • When the larynx is compressed by a relaxed jaw

  • Large tonsils or a long soft palate
