Protect Your Smile Throughout the Night
If you’re taking the stresses of life out on your teeth by grinding and clenching, our nightguards (also called bite guards) may provide the solution to headaches, jaw joint symptoms and destructive wear.
It’s called bruxism, and often it happens as we sleep, caused not just by stress and anxiety, but by sleep disorders, an abnormal bite, or teeth that are missing or crooked. Our nightguards are worn during sleep and protect your teeth, jaws, and muscles from over-loading and wearing.
But remember, if stress is the cause you need to find a way to relax! Physical therapy, muscle relaxants, less caffeine, counseling, and even exercise may help reduce tension. Don't make your teeth the brunt of your stress!
