Night Guard/Mouth Guard
With changing of time there has been steady increase in the level of stress in our lives. This has resulted in a gradual increase in the number of our patient with worn down and damaged teeth due to grinding of teeth. If left untreated this habit of grinding of teeth may lead to several problems like:
- Worn down teeth resulting in short looking teeth and unpleasant smile.
- Teeth that are sensitive to hot and cold drinks.
- Chipped / Fractured teeth.
- Sharp edges of teeth.
- Jaw Joint problems, e.g. pain in jaw joints, lock jaw, Popping of jaw joints, Pain in jaw joint during chewing of foods etc.
In those conditions we fabricate a Night guard for our patients to wear at nights during sleeping time. The night guard is custom fabricated and fitted so that it is easy to wear and comfortable. The orthotic will protect the natural teeth and jaw joints from further damage due grinding of teeth at nights during sleep.
If you think you are one of those who grind your teeth during sleep, please call our office for a consultation and possibly fabrication of a custom made night guard.
