Night Guards or splints are custom made mouth guards to be worn to protect your teeth and relax your jaw muscles.
Also known as Michigan or tanner appliances they are effective whether they are made for your upper or lower jaw.
Grinding or bruxism is usually during sleep, but bruxism during waking hours is often called clenching, usually with no sound. During sleep it is accompanied by a loud grinding or tapping of the teeth. Some people are unaware they are doing it, only their partner or dentist notices it. Most people will grind or clench their teeth. It only becomes pathological if it causes tooth damage, pain, and sleep disturbance to you or your partner.
Night Guards help to prevent you grinding your teeth and help to prevent the problems associated with it.
