If you awake in the morning with a sore jaw or a mild headache / tooth discomfort, you’ll want to contact Premier Dental Arts as you may be suffering from night time teeth grinding, which affects 10-15% of the adult population.
Using a custom fit night guard can assist with alleviating such symptoms. A night guard is an appliance that can be worn while sleeping through the night. Night guards provided by Premier Dental Arts are of higher quality and better fit than anything “over the counter” and are made by a special impression in a lab, providing greater comfort.
The main function of your night guard is to prevent the surfaces of your teeth from grinding together, which can cause chipping and cracking and create stress and tension in your mouth.
