Night guards are recommended to protect patients who clench or grind their teeth during the night. Teeth clenching and grinding can damage teeth and be harmful to your long-term oral health. These custom-designed appliances are fabricated by a dental laboratory and are made of hard plastic that absorb the forces generated by clenching and grinding. Once they are returned from the laboratory, they are further customized to provide the best possible bite equilibration to protect teeth and jaw muscles from harm.
