Keeping Your Smile Beautiful For Life.
Night guards are one of the simplest and most effective ways to help treat TMJ and teeth grinding. With a custom fitted night guard, your teeth and jaw will be able to relax while you sleep, allowing you to wake up without pain. Night guards also help protect your teeth from the excessive wear that can be caused by teeth grinding and teeth clenching.
You can purchase night guards in most pharmacies. However, these store-bought night guards are usually much less effective at treating TMJ and bruxism than custom-made mouth guards. When you visit our dental office, your Costa Mesa dentist will make a mold of your mouth and carefully examine your teeth to determine exactly how your mouth is being affected by your bruxism or TMJ. With their expert eyes, they can examine the wear on your teeth and provide you with a professional solution for dealing with your bruxism or TMJ — a solution that simply can’t be matched by a store-bought guard. There are various types of custom-fitted night guards that your dentist can provide you with, and their solution will be much more effective at helping you sleep more soundly and wake up more refreshed.
Call our office today at 949-777-1005 to schedule an appointment to get fitted for your custom night guard as soon as possible. You’ll be amazed at how well a simple oral device can help reduce your pain and improve your sleep — literally overnight!
