Occlusal Guards

Bruxism is a condition in which you clench or grind your teeth either during the day or while sleeping. Some people have no symptoms but the evidence of worn or cracked enamel can be noted during a dental exam. Others have sore jaw muscles, clicks or pops in the TMJ (temporomandibular joint), headaches, or sensitive teeth. An occlusal guard is highly encouraged for patients who have sleep bruxism as it will protect the teeth from further damage. After performing intraoral scans of all of the teeth and their relationship to one another, we are able to fabricate custom made acrylic mouthguards for those in need.
