We are pleased to offer night guards at Simple Smiles Dentistry to treat a variety of dental needs. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Carlos Rojas and his associates, may recommend a night guard if you suffer from teeth grinding and clenching, which is also known as bruxism. The nightly act of grinding and clenching your teeth is often done unconsciously and can lead to several painful effects, including:
- Increased tooth sensitivity
- Jaw pain or tightness in the jaw muscles
- Teeth that are worn down, flattened, fractured, or chipped
- Chronic facial pain
- Tired jaw muscles
- Worn tooth enamel
If you experience one or more of the above symptoms, you may suffer from bruxism. A night guard can prevent bruxism and relieve the effects of teeth grinding and clenching, but our team will first ensure this is the best treatment for your dental needs. The night guard fits over your teeth and is worn while you sleep to prevent bruxism and dental attrition. Our dentists will make sure that your night guard in Patterson, New York, fits your smile comfortably, so you can sleep peacefully. We welcome you to contact our office at 973-977-8181 today to learn more about how a night guard can improve your oral health and relieve pain!
