Night Guards/Bruxism Appliances
Many people are afflicted with bruxism, or teeth grinding. Some people may do this consciously during the day, but it is a larger problem at night while you are asleep. Grinding your teeth can damage enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain, or irritate your gums. The noise from teeth grinding can also disturb your spouse's sleep if loud enough.
If you grind your teeth you should consider a night guard. Night guards act as a barrier between your top and bottom teeth while you sleep. All night guards are custom-fitted for comfort and to allow for proper breathing.
