Night and Snore Guards
To help our patients with issues related to clenching, grinding, and snoring, we create custom night guards and snore guards. Jaw clenching and bruxism (teeth grinding) can cause damage to your teeth by way of cracks, chips, and accelerated decay. A night guard serves as a layer of prevention for your teeth against a night of clenching or grinding. Snoring often effects the qualtiy of your sleep as well as your loved ones. The snore guard prevents snoring by moving the lowere jar forward which relieves pressure on the larynx.
