Dental Nightguards

Dental nightguard are available at Linglestown Family Dental in Harrisburg, PA

A dental nightguard, also known as an occlusal splint or bite guard, is a removable dental appliance used to protect teeth from grinding or clenching during sleep.  It is a custom-made device that fits over the teeth, providing a barrier between the upper and lower jaws.  Nightguards are typically made of a durable, flexible material such as acrylic or thermoplastic.

Nighttime teeth grinding, also called bruxism, can lead to a range of dental problems including tooth wear, jaw pain, headaches, and even damage to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). A dental nightguard helps to alleviate these issues by providing a cushioning effect, absorbing the forces generated during grinding or clenching and preventing direct contact between the teeth.

To obtain a dental nightguard, a dentist will take impressions of the patient’s teeth and send them to a dental laboratory for fabrication.   Once the nightguard is ready, the patient can wear it while sleeping to protect their teeth and jaws.   Regular cleaning and maintenance of the nightguard are essential to ensure its longevity and effectiveness.   If you suspect teeth grinding or clenching, consulting with Linglestown Family Dental to determine if a nightguard is appropriate for your situation.
