If you often wake up with jaw pain, or headaches, or if you find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth, you may have a common condition called “bruxism.” Many people do not realize they grind or clench their teeth, as it often occurs when one is sleeping. If not corrected, bruxism can lead to broken or cracked teeth.

Night guards are an easy way to prevent the wear and damage that teeth-grinding and clenching causes over time. Custom-made by your dentist to fit your teeth, a night guard is inserted over your top or bottom arch and prevents contact with the opposing teeth.
