  • Help you avoid the need for restorative dental work

Keep Your Smile Intact With a Professional Night Guard

Without knowing it, many people grind their teeth in their sleep. That’s why your dentist and hygienist will check for signs of bruxism at each dental cleaning and exam. If we see signs of worn teeth, we’ll recommend that you invest in a professional mouthguard to wear while you’re sleeping.

This appliance will:

  • Fit comfortably in your mouth, as it will be made specifically for you
  • Keep your teeth apart so if you have a habit of clenching and grinding, you’ll spare your teeth from damage
  • Perform better and last longer than a store-bought mouthguard

Your new night guard will also help with any TMJ pain you’ve been experiencing. If your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) on either side of your head are sore or hurt when you open and close your mouth, this appliance will help. It will move your lower jaw forward a bit to relieve tension on your jaw so you can relax while sleeping. Wearing the mouthguard while you sleep will also allow your TMJs to begin the healing process.

Getting a custom mouthguard from Jackman Family Dentistry is a win-win situation. Not only will it protect your smile against the effects of teeth grinding, it will also help your aching jaw feel better.

Call us today at 707-608-6973 to find out more about Vacaville mouthguards. We looking forward to helping you maintain a beautiful, pain-free smile.

Common Questions About Mouthguards
Why are mouthguards important?

Mouthguards can serve several important functions, including preventing you from grinding your teeth at night. A mouthguard created by your dentist is the best way to ensure a custom, comfortable fit and that it’s made of high-quality, durable material. It will also protect your teeth better than a mouthguard bought off the shelf.

How do mouthguards help TMJ?

While the exact cause of TMJ disorders is unknown, many people who suffer from this painful ailment clench their jaws and/or grind their teeth. These habits, often caused or exacerbated by stress, in many cases take place while you are sleeping. Wearing a custom mouthguard at night gently positions your jaw in a way that prevents these behaviors and facilitates the healing of your TMJ.

Are mouthguards bad for your teeth?

On the contrary! Mouthguards protect your teeth from damage. If you grind your teeth, wearing a mouthguard keeps your enamel in great shape. We offer custom mouthguards that provide a superior fit and better protection. You’re less likely to need restorative dental care by wearing one.
