Professional dental night guards are usually recommended for patients with a teeth grinding habit, also known as bruxism. People clench and grind their teeth without being aware of it both during the day and night.
Teeth grinding can wear your teeth down. It can also cause headaches and eating disorders. To prevent teeth grinding, your dentist at Loma Vista Dental can create a professional custom dental night guard for you.
There are different types of splints for night guards. Some fit over the top teeth and some over the bottom. These night guards are made by us professionally to keep your jaw more relaxed and to avoid grinding your teeth. No anesthesia is needed.
