Night Guards

Teeth get protection with custom night guards from your Calgary dentist

Custom Dental Night Guard Calgary AB - A Man Sleeping It is estimated that up to 15 percent of adults have bruxism. This condition causes them to clench and grind their teeth, during the day and while they sleep. In the short term, bruxism results in headaches and muscle pain. Over the course of years, it damages jaw joints, and leads to chips, cracks, and wear in teeth. The dentists at Calgary Dental Centers are here to help, with custom made night guards.

Your options in night guards

Stock night guards – This is the cheapest alternative, available at drug and retail stores. They typically come in three sizes. Because of awkward fit, they are not comfortable, may fall out at night, and don’t provide adequate protection.

Boil and bite guards – This type of night guard is also available “off the shelf” in a few general sizes. You heat the appliance in boiling water to soften the plastic, then insert it into your mouth and bite down to shape it to your own bite . . . somewhat.

Custom made night guards – This option provides the most secure, comfortable fit, and the best protection for teeth and temporomandibular joints. Your dentist takes precise impressions of your mouth, then uses these mold to have a high-quality night guard fabricated just for you. Our dental team makes sure you know how to wear the guard properly, and how to care for it for years of dependable use.

Healthy advice

We develop long term relationships with our patients. Over time, we come to know your lifestyle and daily habits. That insight allows our dental professionals to offer suggestion for small changes you can make to help alleviate bruxism triggers. We discuss stress reduction techniques and dietary adjustments, and evaluate whether a sleep disorder might be contributing to your grinding. You won’t get that level of care at a retail store.
