Grinding or clenching your teeth (bruxism) while you sleep can cause jaw pain, eroded tooth surfaces, tooth sensitivity, fractured enamel and headaches. A customized night guard can be made to protect your smile and reduce the effects of grinding on your teeth.
We can also help protect your teeth with customized sports guards if you are involved in high-impact sports that could result in a chipped or lost tooth.
Impression Appointment – 20 mins
At the first appointment we will make an impression of your teeth which we send off to a local dental lab to turn into a nightguard. We can typically take care of this at the end of a dental cleaning/exam. The turnaround time with the lab is approximately 2 weeks.
Delivery Appointment 2 weeks later – 20mins
After you try on your guard for fit it will be smoothed and refined to make sure that it nothing is uncomfortable, and that your bite remains unchanged.
