Sleep Dentistry and Night Guards


Dental Night Guards

An estimated 40 million adults are affected by bruxism, also known as teeth grinding or clenching. Not only can this cause a bad night’s rest, it can also lead to pain and oral health problems such as:

  • Worn tooth enamel

  • Recessed gums

  • Increased tooth sensitivity

  • Jaw pain

  • Earaches

  • Headaches

  • Damage to the temperomandibular joint (TMJ)

  • Toothache

  • Difficulty opening jaw

Whether it’s caused by stress, improper jaw alignment or genetics, a bruxism treatment device can ease the discomfort and eliminate the associated health risks. City Different Dentistry offers a variety of bruxism treatment devices, including dental night guards. A dental night guard is a retainer-like ortho appliance designed to protect the teeth from the pressure of clenching and grinding by providing a protective cushion between the upper and lower teeth.
