Night Guard

Night Guard

While snoring and teeth grinding may seem harmless and common, these behaviors can be symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder and sleep apnea. About 20% of the adult population suffers from these symptoms. TMJ is the inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, often a result of abrasive tooth grinding. It can lead to severe migraines and even hearing loss.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that occurs when a patient’s breathing is interrupted during sleep and causes snoring. This type of behavior should be treated promptly.

A Night Guard is an oral appliance that holds the mouth open and/or moves the jaw forward when worn during sleep. It prevents the teeth from damage caused by grinding. Each Night Guard is personalized to fit your mouth structure and symptoms.
