If you grind your teeth while you’re asleep, it may help to wear a mouth guard or mouth splint at night.
Mouth guards and splints even out the pressure across your jaw and create a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth to protect them from further damage. They can also reduce any grinding noises you make at night.
Mouth guards are similar to those used in sports such as boxing or rugby. They’re rubber or plastic and can be made by your dentist to fit your mouth.
If you have any questions or concerns about night guards, please contact our practice.
