If you suffer from bruxism, which refers to teeth grinding and clenching, our dentist and team may recommend that you get a night guard to keep your teeth at their best and enjoy a more restful night of sleep.
What Are the Signs I May Need a Night Guard?
- Chronic jaw, facial and ear pain
- Frequent tightness in the jaw
- Tension headaches and migraines on a frequent basis
- Excessive tooth wear
- Worn tooth enamel that exposes inner layers of the tooth
- Indentations on the side of the tongue
- Tooth sensitivity
What Should I Expect?
If you have ever worn an over-the-counter night guard, you may have found it uncomfortable or difficult to sleep in. The reason for this is because night guards found in most drugstores aren’t fitted to your smile’s needs. It may have been too small or too large for your mouth. It may also have been ineffective for your smile’s needs. With a custom-made night guard, those problems are eliminated. During your appointment to get a night guard in Longmont, Colorado, Dr. Todd M. Roby will take precise measurements of your smile, crafting your oral appliance to fit your smile perfectly. Because of this precise fit, you will be able to sleep comfortably and feel secure in the fact that it is designed for your unique needs.
