Protect your teeth while you sleep.
Commonly known as a night guard, a dental wear guard is an appliance made of plastic material, custom fitted for a patients mouth, is used for purposes of protecting teeth from teeth grinding and clenching (Bruxism), and to relieve jaw joint and jaw muscle issues (known as Tempomandibular Joint Disorder or TMD.
Even though the term night guard is used very commonly, every patient presents different issues requiring wearing the guard not only at night but sometimes during the day as well. Dr. Patel has sought extensive education in this field. The wear guards fabricated in our office are made with careful evaluation of patient’s symptoms. Its not as simple as taking impressions of your jaws and fabricating an appliance. Dr. Patel uses a step by step approach that involves careful evaluation of how your muscles, teeth and joint interacts with each other to fabricate an appliance that not only protects teeth but also prevent muscle and joint issues.
Let us know if you experience such issues and we can schedule a consultation to review your treatment options.
