Occlusal Guards

Back to Prosthodontics

Occlusal Guards is often called a nightguard or a bruxism guard. It protects against bruxism, which is the clenching or grinding of the teeth that happens mostly at night. Because the jaw puts an extreme amount of pressure can result in damage to the teeth and painful symptoms of TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder. Occlusal guards customized by a dentist to fit a patient’s mouth exactly.
