Our dentist and team understand the impact that conditions like bruxism (teeth grinding) can have on your oral health and overall well-being. To combat the adverse effects of this condition, Dr. Josh M. Millsaps recommends the use of custom-fitted night guards in Hickory, North Carolina. These oral appliances are designed to be worn during sleep, providing a barrier between your upper and lower teeth to prevent damage caused by grinding and clenching.

Why Consider a Night Guard?
We outline several benefits of using night guards for patients with bruxism:

  • Prevents Tooth Damage: Night guards protect against wear and tear on your teeth, preventing chipping, cracking and enamel erosion.
  • Reduces Jaw Pain and Tension: By alleviating the pressure of teeth grinding, night guards can significantly reduce jaw pain, headaches and TMJ disorders.
  • Improves Sleep Patterns: Using a night guard can lead to a more comfortable and uninterrupted sleep by reducing the discomfort associated with clenching and grinding.

Custom-Fitted for Comfort and Effectiveness
The team at Hickory Dentistry specializes in creating night guards that are:

  • Custom-Fitted: Tailored to fit the unique contours of your mouth for maximum comfort and protection.
  • High-Quality Materials: Made from durable, safe materials designed to withstand the pressure of grinding without causing discomfort.
  • Easy to Use and Care For: Night guards are simple to clean and maintain, ensuring they remain hygienic and effective over time.
