What is a Night Guard?
A night guard is a custom-fitted mouth guard that you wear over your teeth while you sleep to prevent the effects of teeth grinding (bruxism) and TMJ disorder.
At Fort Richmond Dental Centre in Winnipeg, our dentists provide night guards to help our patients protect their teeth.Request Appointment
Custom Night Guards
At Fort Richmond Dental Centre in Winnipeg, our dentists will take a digital scan of your teeth and create a custom mouth guard that will fit your teeth precisely. This ensures a secure and comfortable fit, which is important for it to be effective.
Prevention & Protection
A night guard will act as a cushion or barrier, protecting your teeth from the damaging effects of teeth grinding while sleeping.
If you suffer from TMJ disorder, a night guard will prevent jaw clenching and the pain associated with it.
If you tend to grind your teeth at night, the constant wear will cause damage to the enamel. Likewise, clenching your jaw at night can cause pain and headaches.
If you experience a sore jaw, headaches, or tooth sensitivity after sleep, ask your dentist if a night guard is right for you.
