Nightguards for Teeth Grinding
Nightguards are made for patients who grind their teeth (also called buxism). When left untreated, teeth grinding can lead to some very serious issues.
A nightguard, which is made of clear acrylic, is usually worn while the patient sleeps - that's when grinding happens most frequently. Wearing a nightguard will help in protecting your teeth and any previous dental work that has been done (crowns, veneers, etc.) from chipping or breaking.
