What is a NightGuard?
It is a thin plastic appliance which covers the upper six front teeth. NightGuard is comfortable to wear and you generally wear it only at night when you are sleeping.
Why do I need a NightGuard?
An extremely large number of people grind and gnash their teeth while sleeping. Many people are unaware that they are doing this. It is sometimes thought that grinding will occur during periods of stress. We believe now that while stress may enhance your periods of grinding, it is not the only cause. While you are asleep, your teeth will come together about two to four hours during seven to eight hours of sleep. When there are irregularities in the chewing surfaces of your teeth, an automatic reflex occurs (by grinding) to eliminate a spot where it is too high. Your neuro-muscular system steps into high gear and extends thousands of pounds of pressure through the muscles of the mouth and jaw to grind away your teeth in a never ending battle which does nothing but cause aches and pains.
How will I know if I grind my teeth?
How does a NightGuard help?
NightGuard, through its simple but unique construction, totally prevents your back (posterior) teeth from coming into contact so those unconscious efforts to correct the irregular chewing surfaces on your teeth are completely thwarted and therefore there is NO MORE GRINDING.
NightGuard devices have been used by thousands of people with great results. We feel that you will, within a few days of wearing your NightGuard, realize the benefits it has for your life. Maybe you have a friend, relative or acquaintance you may know who grinds their teeth. They will love you for telling them about NightGuard.
