Night (occlusal) guards help to protect your teeth from moderate-severe nighttime grinding or bruxism. Those who grind their teeth at night are more susceptible to significant tooth damage and decay and their teeth typically have a shorter life expectancy.
By providing a barrier between your lower and upper teeth, night guards will help protect your teeth against nighttime grinding. In addition, consistent use of your night guard may help you avoid paying unnecessary dental restoration costs and ensure that your teeth remain healthy and strong. Dr. Orandi will customize your night guard to perfectly fit the dimensions of your mouth and teeth. This custom-made guard will remain comfortably in your mouth and make it easier for you to breathe while you are sleeping.
