Night guards are a valuable tool in protecting your teeth and jaw from the harmful effects of bruxism, or teeth grinding, during sleep. At The Healing Art of Dentistry, Dr. Franziska Dutton and Dr. Daniel Cohen understand the importance of preserving your oral health, and we offer custom night guards to help alleviate the symptoms of bruxism.

Here are why night guards are essential for managing bruxism:

  • Prevents Tooth Wear: Night guards create a protective barrier between the upper and lower teeth, preventing them from grinding against each other and reducing the risk of tooth wear and damage.
  • Relieves Jaw Pain: Bruxism can lead to jaw pain, headaches and muscle tension. Night guards help to alleviate these symptoms by promoting proper jaw alignment and reducing pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
  • Protects Dental Work: For patients with dental restorations such as crowns, bridges or veneers, night guards can help protect these investments from the damaging effects of bruxism.
  • Improves Sleep Quality: By reducing teeth grinding and associated discomfort, night guards can improve sleep quality and help patients wake up feeling more refreshed.
  • Customized Fit: Our custom night guards are tailored to fit your mouth comfortably and securely, ensuring optimal effectiveness and comfort.

Our experienced dentists and team will conduct a thorough evaluation of your oral health and discuss your symptoms and treatment options for bruxism. If a night guard is recommended, we will take impressions of your teeth to create a custom-fit appliance that meets your specific needs.

If you suffer from bruxism, do not let it compromise your oral health and quality of life. Contact us at 530-241-4134 to schedule a consultation and learn more about how night guards in Redding, California, can help protect your smile.
