Night Guards

An experienced Lancaster dentist, such as Dr. Markarian, can create custom night guards to perfectly fit your teeth and mouth. A mold is taken of the teeth that is then used to create soft plastic guards. The guards are worn over the top and/or bottom rows of teeth at night. They serve to provide a cushion for the teeth that protects against the effects of clenching and grinding throughout the night. Wearing night guards while sleeping can reduce or eliminate a sore jaw, headaches and tooth pain, as well as help you feel more rested in the morning.

If you regularly wake up with headaches, tooth pain or a sore jaw, you might be clenching or grinding your teeth at night. In addition to the discomfort this can cause, it can also wear down and weaken the teeth over time, as well as strain your jaw. Further, teeth grinding can prevent you from feeling rested in the morning. A dentist in Lancaster, CA, can help by creating custom night guards to protect your teeth . To learn more about night guards and if they are right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Markarian by calling Golden Dental at (661) 948-8100.
