Night Guards (Occlusal Splints)
Grinding and clenching (bruxism) is a common and often unconscious habit which can present at any age. It goes frequently unnoticed but can have some serious and irreversible consequences. Chronic pain in the head and neck, clicking/locking jaws, flattened unsightly teeth and chipping/fractured teeth are all common features.
While we always advocate investigating the root cause of the bruxism first, a night guard will often be prescribed as a physical barrier to protect your teeth from ongoing damage and prevent the inevitable need for costly dental treatment. We provide custom fit lab made night guards tailored to suit your mouth. These are superior in comfort and fit compared to other alternatives.
