Occlusal ("night" or "bite") guards are custom-made appliances that treat bruxism (grinding and clenching) while you sleep. Common signs of nighttime grinding and clenching include:
- Ear pain
- Excessive tooth wear
- Facial pain
- Jaw pain
- Tooth sensitivity
Generally worn at night, the strong, durable material relieves the symptoms of bruxism by comfortably separating the jaws to calm facial nerves, relax muscles, and minimize the traumatic forces that lead to irregular tooth wear.
