One of the best and the easiest treatments of these dental problems is the use of night guards (also called mouth protector, gum-shield, gum-guard). A dental night guard is a protective shield which is worn at bedtime to avert grinding or clenching, protecting your teeth and TMJ.
The Potential Benefits of Wearing a Night Guard
In addition to protecting teeth from grinding at night, patients have also mentioned other benefits to wearing their night guard, including; improved breathing, deeper sleeping, less snoring, and more.
Several brands offer ready to use night guards; however, custom-made night guards are safer, more effective and allow the dentist to monitor the results. A custom-made night guard fits perfectly and is designed to treat the specific condition of the patient.
