Are your teeth and jaw feeling the strain of nighttime grinding and clenching? Introducing night guards, your shield against these nocturnal habits. At Murdock Family Dentistry, we offer customized night guards in Billings, Montana, to help you enjoy restful sleep and protect your teeth from unwanted damage.
Why Would I Need a Night Guard?
Nighttime teeth grinding, known as bruxism, can be harmful. It can lead to worn-down teeth, jaw pain, headaches and even dental issues. If you wake up with a sore jaw or notice your teeth becoming increasingly sensitive, you might be a candidate for a night guard. This dental appliance acts as a protective barrier, preventing the damaging effects of bruxism.
Getting a night guard is a simple process. First, we will take impressions of your teeth to create a custom-fit guard. This ensures optimal comfort and protection. Once your night guard is ready, we will show you how to wear and care for it. You will slip it on before bed, and it will create a cushioning effect that minimizes the impact of grinding and clenching.
