A night guard is a type of mouth guard that forms a protective barrier between your upper and lower jaw to put a stop to teeth grinding. During your first appointment with us, our night guard dentist will take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab. A few weeks later, your teeth grinding guard will be ready. Our dentist will check the fit before you leave so you’ll be able to breathe and sleep comfortably.
