At Gulf Coast Dental Care, we recognize the impact that conditions like bruxism (teeth grinding) and TMJ disorders can have on your oral health and overall well-being. To address these issues, we offer custom-fitted night guards as a key part of our comprehensive dental care services. Designed to prevent the wear and damage caused by teeth grinding and clenching, our night guards are tailored to each patient’s specific needs, ensuring comfort and effectiveness. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing solutions that not only protect your teeth but also improve your quality of sleep.

Understanding Night Guards

Night guards are protective devices worn over the teeth to prevent direct contact between the upper and lower teeth during sleep. By creating a physical barrier, night guards help alleviate the pressure from clenching and grinding, which can lead to tooth damage, jaw pain and headaches. Custom-fitted night guards, made from durable materials, offer a comfortable and secure fit, ensuring they stay in place throughout the night.

The Night Guard Fitting Process

The process for fitting a night guard begins with a detailed assessment of your teeth and jaw to determine the severity of bruxism or the presence of TMJ disorders. Impressions of your teeth are then taken to create a night guard that fits your mouth precisely. This custom fit is crucial for comfort and effectiveness. Once your night guard is ready, we will ensure it fits perfectly, making any necessary adjustments for optimal protection.
