Why Use Custom Night Guards

Custom night guards are the best solution for preventing nighttime teeth grinding. They create a strong resin barrier to prevent tooth-on-tooth grinding. Unlike generic options, custom night guards are precisely molded to your teeth, ensuring stability, preventing dislodging, and maintaining your natural bite.

For TMD, the right night guard is essential. Traditional night guards tackle teeth grinding, but TMD relates more to jaw clenching. A custom night guard prevents back teeth contact, addressing both grinding and clenching effectively.

Custom night guards can also mildly adjust your jaw position to relieve TMD pain, requiring regular dentist check-ups.

How to Get Custom Night Guards

To obtain a custom night guard, book an appointment with your dentist. They'll create a tailored night guard by taking impressions of your mouth. This custom fit ensures it stays in place. Your dentist will discuss your TMD and collaborate on the best night guard type. They'll also explore pain management, treatment options, and future check-ups.

FAQ at our Orléans office

Q: Can TMD be related to other conditions?

A: TMD shares symptoms with oral cancer. If you have these symptoms, consult a dentist to confirm TMD. TMD may also link to other co-occurring conditions.

Q: How can I reduce the risk of TMD?

A: To lessen jaw joint pain, quit smoking, avoid using teeth as tools, eat softer foods when your jaw is sore, and consider a night guard if you grind your teeth.

Q: Does dental hygiene affect TMD?

A: Typically, TMD influences dental hygiene. Pain inhibits brushing and flossing. Neglecting hygiene can lead to dental problems, so seek dental care if TMD affects your hygiene.
