Occlusal Guard or Night Guard


Occlusal guard or night guard treatment and prevention is often used for conditions like bruxism or TMJ Bruxism. This is the clenching and grinding of your teeth, which can cause

  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain
  • Accelerated wear and abrasion of tooth structure
  • Fracturing of teeth and restorations

The best treatment for bruxism and TMJ pain is an occlusal guard or “night guard”. Custom night guards are better than OTC guards because of the superior fit and protection. The process usually consists of two dental appointments, taking impressions of both the top and bottom teeth, and then coming back in two weeks for the delivery of the night guard.
