Night Guards

Night Guards IN HIALEAH, FL

Night guards are custom-made dental appliances that can help protect against damage caused by teeth grinding and clenching, a condition called bruxism. At LA Family Dentistry, we offer night guards as part of our range of preventive and restorative dental services.

Teeth grinding and clenching can cause various dental problems, including worn down teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, and jaw pain or headaches. Night guards work by cushioning the teeth and preventing them from grinding against each other, helping to reduce the risk of dental damage and alleviate symptoms of bruxism.

What is the procedure?

Our dental professionals will take impressions of your teeth to create a custom night guard that fits snugly over your teeth. The night guard is made from a soft, durable material that is comfortable to wear and will not interfere with your ability to sleep.

Using a night guard can also help improve sleep quality and reduce snoring, as it can help keep the airway open and prevent the tongue and soft tissues from blocking the airway.

In addition to night guards, our dental professionals may recommend other treatments or lifestyle changes to help manage bruxism. These may include stress management techniques, changes in sleeping position or environment, or other oral appliances such as splints or bite guards.
