Night Guard

Night Guard

Symptoms that are seemingly harmless and common, such as snoring and teeth grinding, can be signs of the dangerous TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder and sleep apnea. As many as 20% of the adult population suffers from these behaviors. TMJ is the inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, often manifested in abrasive tooth grinding. It can lead to severe migraines and even hearing loss.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder because of which patients can stop breathing for short periods of time during sleep, and it is manifested in snoring. These seemingly harmless behaviors should be fixed promptly.

Night Guard is an oral appliance that holds the mouth open and/or moves the jaw forward when worn during sleep, and can be very effective in correcting such symptoms.  Each Night Guard is personalized to fit your anatomy and symptoms.
