At Northpointe Dental, we understand the importance of a comprehensive approach to dental health, which includes addressing issues that affect your teeth outside of daily brushing and flossing routines. Night guards represent a vital tool in our arsenal to protect against the effects of teeth grinding and clenching, known medically as bruxism. Our experienced dentist and team are committed to customizing night guards for our patients, ensuring a comfortable fit and effective protection.

Protect Your Smile With Custom Night Guards

Night guards are custom-fitted oral appliances designed to be worn during sleep. They provide a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth, preventing the wear and tear associated with grinding and clenching. By choosing a night guard, you are not only safeguarding your teeth but also helping to alleviate jaw tension and preventing potential TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders.

The Custom Night Guard Process Explained

Getting a night guard at our practice is a simple, stress-free process:

  1. Consultation: Our dentist and team begins with a thorough evaluation of your oral health and a discussion about your symptoms to determine if a night guard is right for you.
  2. Impressions: Next, we take precise impressions of your teeth, which are used to create your custom night guard for a perfect fit.
  3. Fitting: Once your night guard is ready, you will return for a fitting to ensure comfort and effectiveness. We may make minor adjustments for optimal protection and comfort.
  4. Guidance: We provide detailed instructions on how to care for your night guard, ensuring its longevity and your ongoing comfort.

The Advantages of Wearing a Night Guard

  • Prevents tooth wear and damage from grinding and clenching.
  • Reduces jaw pain and discomfort, promoting better sleep patterns.
  • Helps prevent TMJ disorders by reducing strain on the jaw joints.
  • Custom fit ensures comfort and effectiveness, making it easy to wear every night.
