Night Guards & Snore Guards

Our dental office in Encino offers solutions for patients who experience sleep disturbances due to grinding and snoring.

Night Guards or TMJ Guards

General-Dentistry-Night-&-Snore-Guards-by-Cosmetic-Dental-of-Encino-1 Night guards are commonly recommended for individuals who experience teeth grinding and clenching, a condition known as bruxism. Teeth grinding can cause significant damage, leading to wear, fractures, and tooth loss, potentially requiring treatments such as root canals or dentures. Symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and even hearing loss in severe cases may accompany teeth grinding, often occurring during sleep without the person’s awareness.

Many individuals grind their teeth while sleeping without being aware of it, but they may notice the symptoms or be informed by a loved one about their grinding habit. General-Dentistry-Night-&-Snore-Guards-by-Cosmetic-Dental-of-Encino-2
A night guard is a customized, well-fitting device that provides a tight and comfortable fit. It is created by taking an impression of the teeth and then molding the guard over the impression to ensure a snug fit. When worn during sleep, the night guard helps prevent teeth from being damaged due to grinding and clenching.

Snore Guards

It occurs when the muscles in the mouth and throat relax, causing a partial airway blockage. This blockage leads to the vibration of throat tissues, resulting in the sound of snoring.

It is designed to fit comfortably over the upper teeth and prevents the jaw and tongue from excessively relaxing and falling back into the throat. Wearing a snore guard can reduce or eliminate snoring by keeping the airway open. These devices are custom-fitted for each individual at our dental office to ensure optimal comfort and effectiveness.
