How will a night guard help me?
Prevent Jaw Pain
Occlusal guards (also known as night guards) are usually prescribed for patients who clench or grind their teeth excessively, which often leads to headaches, jaw pain, and or TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) issues. These appliances not only alleviate symptoms but also reduce the need for expensive dental work in the future. Night guards can protect teeth and restorations from the pressure created from clenching or grinding, decreasing the need for pricey crowns and future root canals.
