Bite Guards and Night Guards
Most people are under stress and tend to clinch and grind their teeth. As a result many require the fabrication of a bite guard to prevent damage to their teeth and jaws. A bite guard will preserve your teeth, the height and size of them and will enable your jaw to relax and stay healthy.
Without a bite guard, people usually wear down their teeth and even fracture them. This creates an unhealthy situation for your teeth and supporting structures. The jaw's muscle shortens, due to being overworked and can cause pain.
In extreme situations a patient's teeth do not align where it is comfortable for their jaw and unconsciously attempts to correct their bite naturally. This may require wearing a bite guard 24 hours a day until full mouth restoration can be completed with orthodontics.
