An occlusal night guard is an apparatus provided by Denver dentists used by people who suffer the results of grinding, or clenching their teeth during sleep. These involuntary actions may be stress related. The symptoms include waking with a headache, experiencing soreness in the mouth or face, throbbing teeth, or jaw muscle pain.
Night guards are molded resins that are custom made to fit the wearer. Some types cover the entire set of teeth, while others can be used separately, as required.
Night guards take some getting used to, but after that, quality of sleep is greatly improved.
