Night Guards in South Bend, IN

Protect your smile, even as you sleep! Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw, called bruxism, can happen while you sleep. If you grind your teeth on a regular basis, this can be damaging to your smile and your overall oral health. Adults and even children can be affected by bruxism. Although the cause varies from stress to developing this as a habit, you may notice the symptoms which may include headaches, sore jaw, loosened and painful teeth, or even fractured teeth. Prolonged grinding can reduce tooth enamel and cause sensitivity and may even create bone loss.

Our dentist can fit you with a custom night guard that adds a cushion between your teeth, keeping them apart and preventing the friction caused by teeth grinding. Customizing your night guard will ensure the most protective, yet comfortable fit allowing you to get a good night’s sleep. In fact, a custom guard may even help your loved one sleep more soundly, as it will reduce the noise associated with grinding. Our dentist will custom-fit your night guard using impressions of your teeth and molding the guard to your mouth. Made of custom material, the guard will fit over your top teeth, and cushions your molars to absorb and prevent grinding. If you wear braces, your dentist may recommend a night guard that also fits over your bottom teeth. Each patient will leave the office with instruction on how to care for their night guard, which are doable and easy to clean. Call us today for more information.
