Many patients are unaware they grind their teeth at night until it’s brought up by their dentist during a routine oral examination. Sometimes teeth grinding can be so loud that it wakes up your partner. If you suspect you’re grinding or clenching teeth at night, call our office as soon as possible. Our dentists in Cascade and Grand Haven will be able to create a custom night guard that fits comfortably.
A night guard forms a protective barrier between your upper and lower jaw to stop grinding teeth. During your first appointment with us, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab. A few weeks later, your teeth grinding guard will be ready. Our dentist will check the fit before you leave so you’ll be able to breathe and sleep comfortably.
A mouth guard for teeth grinding helps you save money in the long run by preventing further damage to your smile. A night guard costs considerably less than emergency dental care and tooth repair. If you suspect you have bruxism, call our office to learn how a night guard for teeth grinding can help.
