Custom Dental Night Guards in Redmond, Washington
Night guards have an important role in protecting and stabilizing teeth. Many people grind or clench their teeth while they sleep. Also called bruxism, this habit wears down teeth and may also chip or break them. Bruxism can also cause headaches and/or pain in the temporal mandibular joint (TMJ).
Types of Night Guards
There are two main types of night guards that we make. The first one looks like a horse shoe and covers all of the teeth. It does a great job of protecting the teeth from wear and also can stabilize mobile teeth. Another option is called an NTI. It is much smaller and does the same job of protecting the teeth. In addition to this, it can prevent headaches sometimes confused as migraines.
