Why a Night Guard?

Do you experience pain in your jaw joint or have difficulty opening or closing your mouth? Do you have sensitivity in your teeth or do they look shorter? These could be clear signs of grinding or bruxing. If un-controlled, you can damage your jaw joint, your teeth, or any dental work you have received from your dentist. 


Also known as a dental guard, night guards are plastic molds that fit over some, or all of your teeth. Custom made from impressions of your own teeth, night guards are comfortable and work to protect your teeth while you sleep.

The Benefits of a Night Guard

If you grind your teeth at night, we recommend a nightguard to protect your teeth. A night guard is a plastic cover that fits over your teeth to deflect the hard forces of chewing. Nightguards  will also increase the longevity of your dental work. Here are some factors that are associated with teeth grinding:

  • Stress and anxiety

  • Drug abuse

  • Excess use of Caffeine

  • Smoking

  • Excess use of alcohol

  • Some prescription medication

  • Mal-Occlusion or miss-bite

  • Disorders such as Parkinson’s disease


During the first visit, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. This impression is then sent to a dental laboratory where a custom-fit night guard is made. On your second visit, your dentist will show you how to place it into your mouth and will adjust it to your bite. There are different kinds of nightguards from soft materials to harder plastic materials. Your emergency dentist will recommend the material best suited for you.

The best dentist that I have ever visited. In the first place, she is a kind person. She explained every step clearly. She never rushed and gave me some rest time between treatments.

I am also super satisfied with her work.
