What are night guards and mouth guards?

Night guards and mouth guards are designed to protect your teeth for a long-lasting smile. Night guards are used to treat bruxism, or the grinding and clenching of teeth. Teeth clenching or grinding is often caused by stress or anxiety and can lead to worn, damaged teeth. Night guards protect teeth from this stress and pressure; they can also help realign your bite while you sleep to treat and prevent snoring and sleep apnea conditions. Mouth guards are usually worn by athletes during sporting events to protect teeth from damage or trauma. Mouth guards are used for patients of all ages engaged in any activity. At our dental office, we provide high-quality night guards and mouth guards in Carmel, Indiana.

 

There are many types of night guards and mouth guards, from ready-to-wear, pre-made guards that fit any smile to custom-made guards created specifically for you.
