Occlusal guards

Can also be known as mouth guards or night guards and are used to help with muscle and jaw pain while also protecting the teeth from wear and damage. These are recommended for patients that have signs of clenching or grinding such as waking up with sore facial muscles, wear facets on teeth, abfractions or if someone has heard you clenching/grinding in your sleep. Our occlusal guards are custom made to fit your teeth so they are not as bulky as ones that are purchased over the counter. At the delivery of your occlusal guard, we verify the occlusion to make sure your teeth are still touching evenly throughout your mouth.
