Occlusal Guards

Occlusal guards are made to protect your teeth from the effects of nighttime grinding. Over time, nighttime grinding can cause severe problems for your teeth, including significant decay and damage to the surface of your teeth. This can diminish the life and function of your teeth.

Occlusal guards provide a barrier between the upper and lower teeth during nighttime grinding. Down the road, occlusal guards may help you avoid paying unnecessary costs in dental restorations.

We customize your occlusal guard to fit the dimensions of your mouth and protect your teeth. Because your occlusal guard is fitted for you individually, it will stay in your mouth comfortably when you sleep and make it easier for you to breathe and speak.

If you have any questions about receiving an occlusal guard or what you need to do when coming to be fitted for an occlusal guard, please give us a call.
