Night Guards

Night Guards

If you're experiencing chronic headaches and migraines from involuntary night-time teeth clenching, let Bear Canyon Family Dentistry help you with a night guard. A night guard is a thin transparent device that is worn over the biting surface of your teeth while you sleep to prevent contact between the upper and lower teeth.

The Night Guard Fitting Process

  • Impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth to confirm an accurate fit
  • Using your impressions as a mold, the night guard is crafted out of strong, durable plastic
  • When the guard is finished, it is properly fitted to your mouth
  • Simply wear the guard while you sleep every night

Benefits of a Night Guard

  • Helps prevent migraine pain
  • Helps prevent tension-type headache pain
  • Can help prevent jaw disorders by relieving pressure
  • Prevents teeth grinding and the development of TMD (temporomandibular disorder)
