night Guards for teeth grinders
We find that many of our San Francisco patients grind their teeth (bruxism) during the night, resulting in excessive teeth wear, tight muscles, jaw pain, and even headaches. One of the ways to treat bruxism is to prescribe a night guard that protects the teeth whilst preventing future damage.
During ME Dental's comprehensive exam of your motuh we look for signs in the teeth, jaw, and muscles that indicate the patient is grinding their teeth. For patients who do grind their teeth, we fabricate a custom fit night guard. Working side-by-side with our partner Glidewell Laboratories the leader in fabricating night guards, we ensure that the night guard is soft on the inside and hard on the outside to ensure optimum comfort and function.
