Night Guards

Jessica Majewski DMD > Night Guards

Excessive jaw clenching and grinding can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration and pain. To help our patients most comfortably avoid this, we customize night guards to their teeth and bite. An impression is made of the teeth in both top and bottom arches and sent to the lab for night guard fabrication. One guard is worn either on the top or bottom teeth at night to prevent further damage to the teeth and jaw.

  • Stress or anxiety
  • Certain medications or recreational drugs

What are the complications of teeth grinding?
