Night Guards

Night Guards dublin

Do you wake up with sore muscles in your face accompanied by headaches? Have you noticed signs of dental damage on your teeth? If your answer is yes, you could suffer from bruxism, and you need to see Dr. Cynthia Ignacio at Dublin Family Dental for custom-made night guards in Dublin. A night guard protects your teeth and jaws from the habitual grinding and clenching of teeth.

What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is the scientific name for clenching and grinding teeth. Mainly, bruxism occurs when sleeping, but some patients subconsciously clench and grind their teeth while awake. Whatever the case, untreated bruxism can pose numerous unpleasant symptoms, including:

  • Teeth that look flattened or chipped
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw and face pain
  • Tight jaw muscles
  • Dull headaches originating from the temples

If you notice the above symptoms, don’t “learn to live” with them because the condition will not get better. Instead, book an appointment with Dr. Ignacio for proper diagnosis and treatment.

A Mouthguard for Grinding Teeth

While there is no single reliable method for diagnosing bruxism, dental damage is one of the tell-tale signs. However, remember your teeth may wear down due to erosion, abrasion, and long-term attrition. In light of this, you need the help of a professional dentist like Dr. Ignacio to assess bruxism.


Safeguard Your Teeth against Teeth Grinding with Custom-made Night Guards

Although several treatments can be used to manage bruxism, an occlusal appliance is widely considered the best approach. A custom-made mouthguard protects your smile based on a simple principle: it creates a barrier between your teeth, preventing grinding over each other. Also, a mouthguard reduces the amount of pressure on the lower and upper jaw, reducing symptoms like headaches and jaw pain.


Why Custom-Made Mouthguards Are Preferable

While you can purchase over-the-counter mouthguards, these appliances rarely fit in your teeth comfortably. Besides, the materials used for these mouthguards aren’t as durable and are easily destroyed by teeth clenching.

At Dublin Family Dental, we offer custom-made night guards after taking your bite impressions. Our occlusal devices fit perfectly over your teeth because they are made just for you. Besides, we use professional-grade materials to ensure durability and optimized protection.


What is the Process?

Obtaining a custom night guard involves a seamless and efficient process to ensure your comfort and dental health. Initially, we conduct a comprehensive examination to determine the specific needs of your teeth and jaw alignment. Following this, we meticulously take an impression of your teeth to ensure the night guard fits perfectly, providing maximum protection against grinding or clenching during sleep. 

Our team of dental professionals uses state-of-the-art technology to craft a night guard explicitly tailored to your dental structure, ensuring a comfortable fit that allows for uninterrupted sleep. Upon completion, we schedule a final fitting appointment to make any necessary adjustments for optimal comfort and effectiveness. We are committed to providing personalized dental solutions with professionalism and precision, ensuring your dental health is always in good hands.
