Occlusal Dentistry for Clenching/Grinding

Occlusal guards or night guards are made to protect your teeth. It is very common for people to experience nighttime grinding of the teeth. This can become a severe problem because over time, this grinding will cause significant decay and damage to the surface of your teeth, causing the life and function of your teeth to diminish.

Occlusal guards help protect your teeth and provide a barrier between the upper and lower teeth during nighttime grinding. Down the road, occlusal guards may help you avoid paying unnecessary costs in dental restorations. If you have any questions about receiving an occlusal guard or what you need to do when coming to be fitted for an occlusal guard, please give us a call.
