If you clench your grind your teeth, particularly at night, you may suffer from a condition called bruxism. Even though your teeth are very strong, they will eventually wear down under the added pressure.

That way, when you bite down at night, you will simply bite into the nightguard instead of your teeth. You can protect your jaw, gums, and teeth while you sleep. Rely on our team to provide you with a customized nightguard to meet your needs.
