What Is a Night Guard?
In this video, Dr. Victor Apel, a renowned Melbourne dentist, explains how custom-made dental bite guards are an essential tool to combat bruxism.
Do you clench or grind your teeth? Has anybody told you that you do? Those are people where we utilize a bite guard or a night guard to help protect the teeth in their mouth. This also helps to protect the joint, because if you have sore muscles in the morning, you probably are grinding. If you’ve had any of these symptoms or someone you know does have them, give the office a call so we can get them in and get the treatment that’s best for them.
At Designing Smiles Dentistry, your long-term oral health is our priority, and tools like night guards safeguard your smile. If you or someone you love is struggling with teeth grinding or clenching, contact Dr. Victor C. Apel at Designing Smiles Dentistry in Melbourne, FL, for a free consultation to learn how our custom-made bite guards can protect your smile.
