ABOUT NIGHT GUARDS
Teeth grinding at night, also known as bruxism, is a common issue that affects many individuals. Even though the most visible symptom is wear on the enamel of the teeth, nocturnal bruxism might also lead to inflammation, headaches, and tooth pain, as well as discomfort in your jaw and neck. To defend your mouth against the effects of teeth grinding, Dr. Melisa Christian provides customized night guards that can defend your mouth while you rest. Custom night guards are made with top-quality materials that fit comfortably and improve the nature of your sleep by diminishing teeth grinding and jaw clenching. To hear more about custom night guards at Dallas Dental Concierge, set up a consultation at our office in the Knox District of Dallas, TX.
HOW ARE THEY MADE?
After Dr. Christian makes your bruxism diagnosis, she will take impressions and digital x-rays of your mouth so your custom night guard can be created. Dallas Dental Concierge will send these details to the dental laboratory where your specialized night guard will be created with high-quality materials. After your night guard is sent back to our office, you will return to our practice for a fitting. Dr. Christian might make minor adjustments so your night guard fits correctly. We will also give you specific instructions on how to care for your night guard so it lasts a long time.
