Night Guard

Night Guard

Many adults, as many as 20% of the adult population, suffer from the seemingly harmless behaviors of teeth grinding and snoring. These symptoms can be indicative of the presence of dangerous disorders including TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) and sleep apnea. TMJ, an inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, is often manifested in abrasive tooth grinding and can eventually lead to serious migraines and hearing loss.

Sleep apnea, a sleep disorder in which those afflicted stop breathing for periods of time during sleep, is manifested in snoring. While these behaviors are common, they should be fixed promptly. Night Guard, an oral appliance that when worn during sleep holds open the mouth and/or moves the jaw forward, can correct these symptoms. We personally fit each Night Guard to exactly fit your dental needs, anatomy, and symptoms.
