While your brain rests, your teeth might be working overtime. The clenchers and grinders among us are fighting an extra battle to keep their teeth in good condition. Help is on the way, in the form of a comfortable night guard. An occlusal guard won’t cure grinding, but it offers excellent protection against tooth-on-tooth wear and tear. Of course, you don’t want to trade sleep for tooth protection; a night guard needs to fit just right so you can catch those Zs while your teeth catch a break. If you aren’t sure about your grinding or the effect it has on your teeth, schedule a consultation and we’ll take a look. Sleep should be regenerative and restorative—not a grind.
