Custom night guards are dental devices that are designed to protect your teeth from the negative effects of grinding and clenching while you sleep. They are made specifically for you and take into account your unique occlusion (how your teeth fit together) to provide the greatest amount of relief. Custom night guards can reduce pain and tension in your jaw muscles and joints by providing a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth.
This is important for dental health because grinding and clenching can lead to serious dental problems over time, including broken teeth, root canals, and occlusal trauma. Additionally, custom night guards can improve sleep patterns and reduce jaw pain and tension, allowing you to wake up feeling rested and refreshed.
