What are night guards?
One specialized form of mouth guard available is a night guard. Often used to treating teeth grinding and other conditions of the jaw and facial muscles, night guards are made from plastic and fit snugly over the teeth. Their general goal is to protect the teeth and relieve tension and pressure in the jaw and facial muscles. As with mouth guards, our team will make sure that your night guard fits comfortably while you sleep.
