Do you grind your teeth at night?
Do you wake up with a sore jaw, headaches, or tooth pain? It may be time to get in touch with your dentist about a night guard. A night guard, also known as an occlusal guard, occlusal splint, or bite splint, is a plastic mold that fits over some or all of your teeth — most commonly your top teeth. This guard not only relieves the annoying (and sometimes painful) symptoms of teeth grinding, but it can also prevent long term damage to your teeth.
