If grinding and clenching your teeth while sleeping has injured them, then you may want to visit our office for a night guard. Drs. Simonds, Gennaoui, and Schrameyer offer the NTI bite appliance for patients so they will not injure their teeth while they sleep. Schedule an appointment with our dentists if you would like to benefit from a night guard for teeth grinding in Ballwin, Missouri.
Occlusal guards (or night guards) are made to protect your teeth from night-time grinding. Grinding can be a severe problem because it can cause significant decay and damage to the surface of your teeth. This causes the life expectancy and function of your teeth to diminish.
Night guards help protect your teeth and provide a barrier between the upper and lower teeth during nighttime grinding. Down the road, night guards may also help you avoid paying unnecessary costs in dental restorations. We customize your night guard to fit the dimensions of your mouth and protect your teeth. Because your night guard is fitted for you individually, it will stay in your mouth comfortably when you are sleeping and make it easier for you to breathe. If you have any questions about receiving or being fitted for a night guard, please give Ballwin Dental Care a call today.
