Night guards are an essential solution for patients who suffer from bruxism, a condition characterized by grinding or clenching of teeth during sleep. At DC Family Dental, Dr. Mayur Patel offers custom-made night guards to protect your teeth and improve your oral health.

Benefits of Night Guards
Using a night guard can provide numerous benefits, including:

  • Protection Against Tooth Damage: Night guards prevent the wear and tear caused by grinding, protecting the enamel and reducing the risk of fractures and chips.
  • Alleviation of Jaw Pain: By cushioning the teeth, night guards help reduce the tension and pain in the jaw muscles associated with clenching.
  • Improved Sleep Quality: Reducing the discomfort and disturbances caused by bruxism can lead to better overall sleep quality.
  • Prevention of Headaches: Night guards can decrease the frequency and severity of headaches that are often associated with teeth grinding.

How Night Guards Are Made
The process of creating a custom night guard involves:

  1. Consultation: Our dentist will evaluate your condition and discuss the benefits of a night guard.
  2. Impressions: Detailed impressions of your teeth are taken to ensure a perfect fit.
  3. Custom Fabrication: The night guard is custom-made in a dental lab to fit your teeth precisely, providing optimal comfort and effectiveness.
  4. Fitting and Adjustment: Once ready, we will ensure the night guard fits correctly and make any necessary adjustments.
