Similar to a mouth guard, night guards are a form of oral protection used to protect your teeth from night time teeth grinding. When you grind your teeth at night, you are damaging your teeth by wearing down the surface. When this happens, the softer part of the tooth is exposed leaving it more prone to chipping and other oral health issues such as gum disease. About one third of the adult population grinds their teeth at night. Using a night guard can prevent this damage before it begins by protecting your teeth.
