Night Guards

What Are Night Guards?

Night guards are custom-fitted oral appliances designed to prevent the harmful effects of teeth grinding (bruxism) and jaw clenching during sleep. Dr. Ken and Dr. Powell offer personalized night guard solutions to protect your teeth and jaw from the undue stress and potential damage caused by these nocturnal habits. Made from durable, high-quality materials, night guards are an effective way to safeguard your oral health and improve sleep quality.

The Benefits of Night Guards

Wearing a night guard can significantly reduce the wear and tear on your teeth from grinding, decreasing the risk of fractures, chips and wear to the tooth enamel. Night guards also help to alleviate jaw pain, headaches and other symptoms associated with bruxism. By creating a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth, night guards minimize the stress on your jaw muscles and joints, promoting a more relaxed and comfortable sleep.
