It has been estimated that over 30% of all adults clench or grind their teeth at night while they sleep. If this subconscious and quietly destructive action, called bruxing, is left unguarded, the result can include a variety of problems. These include cracked or broken teeth, gum recession, sensitivity to temperatures, teeth that are worn down, headaches, and Temporal-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) pain.
Night Guards are designed to act as a buffer between the upper and lower teeth, protecting them from the potential destruction. Guards are custom made to fit comfortably and last longer than those which are bought over-the-counter.
