Dental Nightguards From Your Dentist in Bradenton
If you or someone in your family grinds their teeth at night, a professional dental nightguard can provide the relief they need to enjoy restful sleep while simultaneously protecting their teeth, gums, and jaw from serious damage.
What’s the difference between professionally-made nightguards and store-bought versions?
There are two types of nightguards available to patients: over-the-counter and custom-made options. While over-the-counter nightguards are less expensive, they do not fit as well as professional, custom-made versions, nor are they as comfortable. Nightguards made by your dentist are also far more durable than store-bought options and offer better protection to your teeth, gums, and jaw.
Is a nightguard always necessary for patients who grind their teeth?
If you suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching while you sleep, it can be very damaging to your smile. Not only can the condition lead to chips, cracks, and other serious dental damage, it can also increase a patient’s risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and even TMJ disorder.
