Grinding of teeth, also known as Bruxism, occurs in both children and adults. Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw generally occurs during sleep and can cause headaches, jaw pain and excessive tooth wear and breakage.
For adults who grind and are wearing down the top surfaces of their teeth, we often recommend a night guard. Each night guard is custom made to ensure comfort and a proper fit. We will take an impression of your teeth and send it to a dental lab. They will mold the night guard over your model using a special procedure.

Night guards can cover the upper teeth or lower teeth. An effective night guard should be comfortable, resist tears, be durable, easy to clean and should not restrict your breathing or sleep.
