A night guard is a dental accessory made of plastic that fits over the top teeth. When you grind or clench your teeth, much of the force is passed to the night guard rather than the teeth. The intensity of the grinding will frequently cause deep grooves to emerge in the night guard. The night guard prevents the same force from causing tooth damage. Without a nightguard, the enamel might be significantly worn away, resulting in tooth sensitivity. Teeth can also be damaged or cracked, necessitating costly restorative dental procedures to fix. Contact Bell Dental Care to receive the most suitable treatment for your specific needs.
Obtaining a teeth protector for sleeping is a straightforward and painless process. Our dentist develops an impression of your teeth. The impression is used to create the mold that will be utilized by the lab to make your night guard out of strong plastic. When the guard is finished, the dentist will inspect it to verify that it fits properly. Then all you have to do is sleep with the guard on. It may feel strange at first, but most of our patients quickly grow used to wearing their night guard. The guard will not obstruct your breathing, and you will be able to communicate properly.
Protects Teeth from Damage
A night guard prevents your top and bottom teeth from making contact while you sleep. Teeth grinding is prevalent and creates a slew of issues with your teeth. Teeth enamel is lost as a result of grinding. Tooth sensitivity is caused by enamel loss. It is important to wear a night mouth guard while sleeping to protect your teeth from any of these difficulties.
Nightguards Improve Sleep
A night guard can enhance your sleep by relieving stress on your jaw muscles and alleviating jaw pain, face pain, and headaches. It's a lot simpler to obtain a nice, peaceful night's sleep when you're not in pain, as you might expect.
Prevents Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a joint that connects the jaw to the skull and affects the chewing muscles. When you clench your teeth while sleeping, you put pressure on the TMJ, which can lead to misalignment. Wearing a nightguard helps to prevent the disease from developing since it relieves muscle strain.
