When you have bruxism or you clench or grind your teeth when you sleep, you probably aren't getting a restful sleep. Moreover, all the clenching and grinding is causing great damage to your teeth! By constantly putting pressure on your molars when you clench or grind you are wearing out the chewing surfaces of your teeth and could even crack or fracture your tooth!
A night guard can help you stop clenching and grinding your teeth as well as protecting them from the wear and tear of bruxism. Here at Campbell Dental Group we provide custom-made night guards that will give you a more restful sleep and protect your teeth at the same time.
Using a mold, the dentist will get your teeth measurements and send them to a lab. The lab will create a plastic or rubber night guard according to your measurements and the type of guard recommended by your dentist. Once your night guard is ready, you can try it on to see if the fit is comfortable. Always remember to clean your guard in the morning to make it last longer.
