Teeth clenching and grinding can damage teeth and be harmful to one's long-term oral health. Night guards are recommended to protect patients who clench or grind their teeth during the night and usually for patients who have had one or more implants. These custom-designed appliances can be used as part of a treatment for a variety of disorders, including bruxism and TMJ. They are made of durable plastic and molded to comfortably fit the shape of your teeth.
