Orthodontist in Rancho Cucamonga
Unconscious grinding of the teeth during sleep is a condition known as bruxism. If you or your child are grinding your teeth in your sleep most nights, you should contact our office for a night guard.
A night guard is a removable dental appliance that is similar to an athletic mouth guard. It provides a barrier between you or your child’s top and bottom teeth to protect them while you or your child sleep.
Our team of doctors will custom fit you or your child’s night guard to ensure your comfort and safety. Night guards can protect you or your child’s teeth from wear, gum irritation, enamel damage, and jaw pain.
At you or your child’s appointment, our team of doctors will discuss other ways to help reduce or eliminate night grinding. This may include avoiding chewing gum, alcohol, and caffeine, as these increase the risks of grinding.
If you suspect you or your child may have issues with teeth grinding, contact our office for an appointment.
