Night guards can be an idea solution for a variety of oral issues. They help protect the teeth from wear caused by grinding by creating a fitted barrier that can be safely worn at night. They help protect the jaw as well as the teeth from clenching. Patients who have undergone orthodontic treatments experience more sustained results when their fitted night guards are worn regularly.
Night guards are created using industry leading design software based off of the patient’s impression. They are then 3D printed from KeySplint material which is strong yet flexible, and easy to clean. Guards are hand-fitted and finished for minimal chair-side adjustments. Acrylic hard guards are also available if needed.
Night guards are helpful for patients who:
- grind their teeth
- wish to retain their orthodontic corrections
- have TMJ issues
- clench their jaws
