Guard Against Clenching and Grinding
If you are one of the millions of people that clench or grind your teeth together, you may greatly benefit from using a night guard. There are many proposed reasons why patients clench and grind, but it is clear that whatever the cause, the destruction to the teeth, gums and bone in a person that clenches and grinds is substantial.
At Swiss Biologic Dentistry, Dr. Amelia will frequently recommend a night guard. The process of making the night guard is relatively simple: first, we make impressions of your upper and lower teeth; then, at a subsequent visit we will have you try the night guard on, make any adjustments that are necessary and advise you on how often to wear your night guard and how to clean it.
