Grinding your teeth or snoring at night might seem harmless, but they can have harmful effects on your health. Snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea, a serious health condition that causes breathing to stop during sleep periodically. This typically occurs because the tissue in the back of the throat collapses, blocking the airway.
Teeth grinding and/or clenching causes wear on your teeth, and can lead the facial muscles to become sore and overworked. About 20% of the adult population engages in this behavior, and it is a common response to a stressful life. Night Guard can lessen both of these problems.
This oral appliance is worn in the mouth during sleep, and it helps move the jaw forward and/or hold the mouth open. A Night Guard correctly fitted by our team will stop your snoring and teeth grinding.
