Preventative Dentistry in Seattle
When you’re diagnosed with bruxism or teeth grinding, one of the most popular solution is a night guard. Although it doesn’t really stop the habit of teeth clenching and grinding, it helps you prevent possible damage to your teeth during sleep.
A mouth guard is an oral appliance that you usually wear during sleep so that it absorbs all the grinding and clenching forces.
Night Guards Vs. Sports Guards
- A night guard is meant to protect the teeth from clenching and grinding during sleep. You wear it every night, and it’s fabricated using a thick and strong material to serve its function.
- A sport mouth guard is an oral appliance that is usually prescribed to an athlete to protect his/her teeth from being damaged from a physical blow to the face or an accident.
- Both a night guard and a sports guards are meant to protect teeth, but they protect your teeth in different ways, so please contact Dr. Jon Tarleton before you make a decision.
