Night Guards in Houston, TX

Night guards are used to treat a condition known as Bruxism. This is a condition where people grind or clench their teeth together, usually during sleep. This type of grinding generally occurs because of stress, anxiety, but also because of an abnormal bite alignment or jaw misalignment.

Symptoms include:

  • Jaw pain and headaches in the morning
  • Tooth enamel wear from tooth grinding
  • Broken or chipped teeth from constant force and contact
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Increased muscle tension in the jaw throughout the day
  • Earache and hearing problems
  • Pain, soreness or other temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder symptoms
  • Poor sleep quality, leading to poor work/school performance

Along with these symptoms, untreated bruxism can lead to premature tooth loss from the constant and unnatural exertion of force that the teeth cannot withstand, leading to broken, cracked, chipped or even loose teeth. Children with untreated bruxism can also be at risk for vulnerable teeth, including: a dental abscess, root decay or injury from a facial fracture from tooth grinding.

Night guards are placed around the teeth during sleep. They work by holding the teeth in their proper position while preventing any force from being exerted on them during sleep or daytime rest periods. They offer relief from symptoms in an effective and convenient dental appliance.

How Do Night Guards Work?

Custom-made night guards are a great treatment option for adults, children and teens experiencing the discomfort of bruxism. A night guard is made to fit the individual and is placed on the upper teeth during sleep to provide relief from symptoms.

Night guard treatment may work for you if your dentist recommends them based on their evaluation. They are made of a durable material that is hard enough to protect your teeth but soft enough to be comfortable, protecting either just the back teeth or all of them depending on their design.

While they are also available over the counter, the dental experts at Modena Dentistry and Orthodontics provide night guards in Houston that are custom-fitted for your unique dental needs. Our dental team takes impressions of your teeth that are then used to produce the perfect fit.
