What Are Dental Night Guards?
A night guard is a thin protective device for your teeth to help with bruxism. Bruxism is a condition in which you clench, grind and gnash your teeth.
This device works as a protective layer between the top and bottom of your teeth. It serves as a cushion so that you won’t damage your while you are fast asleep.
Having a night guard will position your teeth naturally and protect it from any pressure from grinding or clenching.
When you grind or clench it can cause you to strain your jaw muscles but wearing a night guard can give your jaw a rest every single night.
Is a custom night guard better than an over the counter night guard?
Absolutely! Over the counter night guards may be a cheaper option but they will not prevent health issues as well as a custom night guard made by EDFD. Using an over the counter night guard could even create new problems for your oral health.
A custom night guard makes sure your jaw is properly aligned and fits perfectly so it won’t fall out. They will also last much longer than an over the counter night guard.
El Dorado Family Dental creates custom night guards with high quality so that it is more durable and comfortable while you sleep.
