Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. To help our patients most comfortably avoid this, we customize night guards to their bite. Our night guard acts as a cushion between the top and bottom dental arches creating more space between the teeth to prevent the top and lower jaw from touching.
