Getting a Nightguard Near You
A nightguard is the most common solution to teeth grinding. When you wear a nightguard, it protects your teeth from the tension and adhesion between your teeth.
There are a few different types of nightguards:
- Soft Nightguard – these are ideal for someone who does not excessively grind their teeth. It provides a soft, comfortable fit.
- Dual Laminate Nightguard – these are more ideal for those who have more excessive teeth grinding. The inside of the nightguard is soft, while the outside is hard to protect your teeth.
- Hard Nightguard – these are the toughest nightguards and can help treat TMJ and very excessive teeth grinding.
While there are nightguards you can purchase at the store and online, a custom made nightguard from the dentist will ensure the most comfortable fit. It will also provide the most protection as it is shaped to your teeth.
