What are Night Guards?

Protect your teeth and improve your sleep with night guards.

Night guards are oral appliances that are worn over the teeth at night to protect them from damage. They can be made of a variety of materials, including hard plastic, soft plastic, and silicone. Night guards are custom-fitted to each individual’s mouth, ensuring a comfortable and effective fit.

Night guards are important for a variety of reasons. They can help to prevent tooth wear and tear, bruxism (grinding or clenching of the teeth), temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and sleep apnea. Night guards can also help to reduce the symptoms of these conditions, such as pain, headaches, and jaw joint problems.

Night guards can improve sleep quality, reduce snoring and potentially protect dental appliances such as crowns and bridges. If you are concerned about the health of your teeth, you should talk to Post Family Dental about whether a night guard is right for you.

Custom Night Guards in Chicago

Your solution for protecting your teeth and improving your sleep.

Custom dental night guards are the most effective type of dental guard because they are made from impressions of your teeth, so they fit perfectly. This ensures that they are comfortable to wear and provide optimal protection for your teeth.

Custom night guards can be made from a variety of materials, including hard plastic, soft plastic, and silicone. The type of material that is best for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. For example, if you have sensitive teeth, you may want to choose a softer material.
