Night guards can help maintain your oral health
A dental guard is worn over the teeth to protect them from damage typically caused by teeth grinding or clenching. You may need a dental guard if you experience any of these symptoms or conditions:
- teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism)
- jaw pain
- worn-down teeth
- temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
Wearing a mouthguard while playing sports can help protect your teeth, jaw, and mouth from potential injuries.
At Open Wide La Jolla, we custom-make dental guards to provide a more comfortable fit. Because they are designed specifically for your teeth and mouth, it can help to prevent discomfort and irritation when worn.
Dental guards can help reduce the risk of teeth grinding, bruxism and sleep apnea. They also protect your teeth from damage caused by sports and other activities that put stress on your mouth.
