Night Guards

Many adults grind their teeth at night during sleep, but are unaware that it is happening. Tooth grinding, which is also known as bruxism, can have long-term, harmful effects on your teeth and your jaw.  Teeth grinding and jaw clenching can also occur during wakefulness, though it is less common. One of the most effective solutions to bruxism is visiting your dentist for a custom-fitted night mouth guard. At Yurovsky Dental, we specialize in using the most up-to-date dental technology to create custom night mouth guards.

Tooth grinding can have both short-term and long-term harmful effects on your health. These symptoms can include:

  • Excessive tooth wear
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Morning headaches
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Painful chewing

Bruxism can also result in needing to frequently replace crowns and fillings, which can become extremely costly over time.

Dr. Yurovsky has helped many patients in dealing with the painful symptoms of nighttime grinding and clenching. A night mouth guard is designed to cover your teeth while you sleep to prevent grinding and clenching from occurring., Dr. Yurovsky will create a custom-fitted mouth guard which, unlike over the counter nighttime mouth guards, will have maximum comfort and no negative effects on breathing while sleeping.

The process of creating a custom nighttime mouth guard is simple. Dr. Yurovsky will meet with you for an initial consultation to discuss your personal symptoms and assess the damages teeth grinding and clenching has made on your teeth. Next, Dr. Yurovsky will take an impression of your mouth, so that your mouth guard will be personalized to your specific mouth. Your impressions will then be sent to the lab and a custom nighttime mouth guard will be created for you.
