Teeth grinding and clenching, also known as Bruxism, is pretty common and can be destructive to teeth. Night guards for Bruxism can help prevent tooth damage and reduce pain.

A night guard which is also known as a bruxism appliance typically covers all of the teeth in one arch. It is flat on top. If an individual grinds or clenches their teeth when sleeping, the teeth do so against the appliance instead of the opposing teeth. This prevents wearing away of the tooth structure.

A night guard is an appliance that is worn while sleeping to protect the teeth from tooth on tooth wear as a result of grinding or clenching. Bruxism is excessive teeth grinding and clenching which usually occurs for some people while sleeping.
