Night Guards

Smile Chula Vista in Chula Vista CA

Many people are afflicted with bruxism, clenching or teeth grinding. Some people may do this consciously during the day, but it is a more common problem at night while you are asleep.

Grinding your teeth can damage enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain, or irritate your gums.

If you grind your teeth you should consider a night guard. The night guard, which is very similar to a mouth guard worn by athletes, provides a barrier between your top and bottom teeth while you sleep. All night guards are custom fitted for comfort and to allow for proper breathing.
