Night Guards in Westchester
A night guard - sometimes called a “bite guard” - is often recommended for people who grind their teeth at night. A night guard is a dental appliance that’s worn in the mouth during sleep that prevents you from grinding your teeth.
Grinding is a symptom of a condition called bruxism. If you often wake up with a headache or sore jaw, you may grind your teeth while you sleep. Do teeth having chips or small cracks? These are also signs of grinding.
We will create a customized night guard using a hard acrylic material that protects your teeth. A custom night guard is made from an impression of your own teeth, ensuring a perfect fit. The hard acrylic surface allows your teeth to naturally rest against it, and reduces the instinct to clench it. Your teeth are protected and the grinding can stop naturally.
