What are bite guards?
Bite guards (sometimes referred to as night guards) are custom fit dental products used for teeth grinding and can be worn during the day or throughout the night to help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with teeth grinding. The bite guard is made from either 2mm or 3mm soft material for ideal comfort. It is also available in dual laminate (hard on the outside, soft on the inside).
What is Teeth Grinding?
Bruxism is a medical term that describes the act of grinding the teeth and clenching the jaw. Sometimes, people grind their teeth without it causing any symptoms or problems. However, regular and persistent teeth grinding can cause pain and discomfort in your jaw. It can also wear down your teeth which can be troublesome.
