Frequently Asked Questions about
If you’re someone who clenches or grinds their teeth at night, you may want to consider investing in a dental night guard. They are designed to protect your teeth from the wear and tear that can result from bruxism.
Night guards keep your upper teeth and lower teeth from grinding together by putting a barrier between them to serve as a cushion for your teeth, reducing the force they receive during grinding.
Wearing a night guard offers many benefits, including:
- Preventing damage to teeth and sensitive teeth
- Reducing headaches and jaw pain
- Improving sleep quality
- Avoiding the need for future tooth removal and costly dental work
It is recommended to wear your night guard every night while you are sleeping. Depending on the severity of your night grinding, your dentists will recommend how long you should wear it.
For some, it may only be necessary to wear it for a few weeks or until the grinding subsides. For others, night guards may need to be worn indefinitely.
Night guards are very easy to care for. You should:
- Rinse it with warm water before and after each use.
- Clean your night guard with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste.
- Let it dry completely before storing it in a clean case.
- Bring your night guard to your regular appointments so the dentist can check if it needs to be replaced.
The cost of custom-made night guards varies depending on your condition and the materials used. The range is between $125 and $350. However, this can change. They are an excellent investment for oral health and are more durable than store-bought ones.
Your dentists will be able to give you a more accurate quote during your consultation. You can also contact your dental insurance provider to see if night guards are covered under your policy.
