Night Guards Defined

Dental night guards are oral appliances that are worn while sleeping to protect the teeth and jaws from the harmful effects of teeth grinding and clenching, also known as bruxism. Bruxism is a common condition that can lead to a variety of dental problems, such as chipped or cracked teeth, worn-down enamel, jaw pain, headaches, and even tooth loss. Night guards are made of a strong material that fits over the teeth and provides a cushioning effect to absorb the forces of grinding and clenching. Dr. Uram custom fits them so that they are custom-fitted to the individual’s teeth.

The Night Guard Process

Our custom-made night guards offer a comfortable and effective solution for teeth grinding and clenching. The first step in making a custom night guard is to take an impression of the teeth. This impression is then sent to a dental lab to create a mold of the teeth. The mold is used to make a customized night guard that fits perfectly over the teeth. The thickness and type of material used to create the guard varies, as it depends on the individual’s dental needs.

Once the guard is ready, the dentist will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. A custom night guard provides comfort and protection. Primarily, custom night guards can prevent dental problems from occurring due to teeth grinding or jaw clenching. If you are experiencing any of these issues, speak to your dentist about getting a customized night guard to improve the quality of your sleep and overall oral health.
