For patients experiencing tooth wear and jaw pain from nighttime grinding and clenching, known as bruxism, our dentists may recommend the use of a custom nightguard to help alleviate complications.
An occlusal appliance, or nightguard, is a removable guard worn at night to create a barrier between the upper and lower teeth, eliminating the continuation of damage caused by these frictions. If you wake up in the morning with jaw, head, and neck pains, you might suffer from bruxism and could benefit from a nightguard.
Our team at Beulah Family Dentistry can also make a custom mouth guard to reduce the risk of dental sports injuries. These mouth guards promote safety and oral healthcare to youth and adults that participate in sports such as basketball, hockey, wrestling, lacrosse, volleyball, and more.
