Also known as a night guard or even a stress guard, bite guards are intended to prevent you from clenching or grinding your teeth. Grinding and clenching are habits that typically occur during the night during sleep. Some people who suffer from this are not aware that they do it until they see the effects afterward. The bite guard is worn at night to prevent such detrimental activity. How can this guard benefit you?
A bite guard may be your key to preserving a strong and healthy smile. If you are not sure whether you have the signs of a harmful grinding or clenching habit, then be sure to talk to your dentist during your next visit.
