Nightguards

Dental Night Guard

Nightguards, also known as occlusal guards, are custom-made appliances which can aid in the prevention of teeth grinding and preservation of precious tooth enamel.

Bruxism, a condition in which a patient may be grinding their teeth, can be treated with the use of these nightguard devices. Bruxism may also occur due to jaw clamping, and stress related issues. Grinding often occurs involuntarily

Early detection is key to preventing any condition that may affect the overall health of your teeth and gums. Consulting with a dental professional at Smile Perfectors can determine whether a patient is experiencing the effects of bruxism, which in some cases, may lead to oral muscle spasms and even TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder).
