Many of our patients have problems with grinding their teeth in their sleep, which can result in a number of issues. Also known as bruxism, teeth grinding can wear down enamel, cause cavities, and crack teeth.
Occlusal Guards are similar to our Invisalign system, in that they are composed of a very dense plastic that is fitted to your teeth, providing a barrier that will keep your airways open as you sleep and prevent your teeth form grinding against each other.
Your dentist will take a mold of your teeth, and use this mold to have an occlusal guard made that perfectly fits your teeth. Night guards are comfortable to sleep with, and should not interrupt your sleep.
Protecting your teeth is very important and bruxism can be a very destructive habit. Occlusal guards are easy to maintain and simple to use, saving you time and money in the future by preserving your oral health.
If you are tired of grinding your teeth as you sleep and wish to protect your oral health for the years to come, then an occlusal guard might be just the solution for you.
