Night Guards

If you are experiencing discomfort due to bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, our dentist can provide relief with custom night guards here at Dentists at Woodway. We specialize in creating night guards that are not only protective but also comfortable, ensuring a peaceful night’s sleep while safeguarding your oral health.

The Role of Night Guards in Preventing Dental Damage

Night guards are an essential solution for those who grind their teeth or clench their jaws while sleeping. This involuntary habit can lead to several dental problems, including tooth wear, enamel erosion, jaw discomfort and increased sensitivity. A custom-fitted night guard acts as a protective layer between your teeth, minimizing the risk of damage and alleviating any associated pain.

The Process of Getting a Night Guard

In our dental practice, we begin providing night guards with a thorough assessment of your oral health, pinpointing the extent of teeth grinding. Based on this, we create a custom-fit night guard using precise dental impressions to ensure a perfect fit and optimal comfort. The guards are made from high-grade, durable materials for lasting use. To complete the process, our team provides detailed instructions on how to use, maintain and care for your night guard, ensuring effective protection for your teeth.

Benefits of Custom Night Guards

  • Protection Against Tooth Wear: Night guards are crucial in protecting your teeth from grinding-related wear and tear.
  • Relief from Jaw Pain: They help mitigate the intensity of clenching and grinding, thus reducing jaw pain and the risk of TMJ disorders.
  • Enhanced Sleep Quality: A well-fitting night guard can lead to better sleep by minimizing grinding-related disturbances.
  • Long-Term Dental Health: Regular use of a night guard plays a significant role in maintaining overall oral health and preventing future dental issues.
