We are pleased to offer night guards at Simple Smiles. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Rojas, may recommend a night guard if you suffer from teeth grinding and clenching, which is also known as bruxism. Grinding and clenching your teeth 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. The night guard fits over your teeth and is worn while you sleep to prevent bruxism. Your dentists will ensure that your night guard fits your smile comfortably so you can sleep peacefully. We welcome you to contact our dental office in Paterson, New Jersey today to learn more about how a night guard can improve your oral health and relieve pain!
