Night Guards FAQs

What is a night guard and how does it work?

A night guard is a dental appliance worn during sleep to protect your teeth from the effects of bruxism (teeth grinding) and jaw clenching. It works by providing a barrier between your upper and lower teeth, absorbing the pressure and preventing damage to your teeth and jaw.

How do I know if I need a night guard?

Signs that you might need a night guard include waking up with jaw pain, headaches, or tooth sensitivity, as well as noticing wear on your teeth. If you suspect you have bruxism, it’s important to consult with your dentist for an evaluation and appropriate treatment recommendations.

How is a custom night guard different from an over-the-counter one?

Custom night guards are specifically designed to fit the unique shape of your mouth, providing better comfort and protection compared to over-the-counter options. They are made from higher-quality materials and are tailored to your bite, ensuring a secure fit and greater effectiveness in preventing damage.

How do I care for my night guard?

Caring for your night guard involves cleaning it daily with a toothbrush and mild soap or non-abrasive toothpaste. Rinse it thoroughly and store it in a protective case when not in use. Avoid exposing it to high temperatures or direct sunlight, as this can warp the material.

Can wearing a night guard help with sleep apnea?

While night guards are primarily designed for bruxism, certain types of oral appliances can also help manage mild cases of sleep apnea by repositioning the jaw to keep the airway open. If you have sleep apnea, consult with your dentist to determine the most appropriate treatment option for your condition.

How often should I replace my night guard?

The lifespan of a night guard depends on the material and the severity of your bruxism. Typically, a high-quality custom night guard can last several years with proper care. However, if you notice any signs of wear, discomfort, or changes in fit, it’s important to consult with your dentist for a replacement.
