A night guard is an oral device you wear while you sleep that helps correct mild to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea, jaw clenching, teeth grinding, and snoring. If you wake up with a tender and throbbing jaw, you might clench your jaw or grind your teeth when you sleep. You might also experience distressing toothaches and headaches.
Dr. Kalantari evaluates your dental health and symptoms and helps you decide if night guards are the best choice for you.
If you continue to grind your teeth but you don’t wear a night guard, you increase your risk of severely damaging your teeth over time. Down the line, you might need veneers, crowns, or other dental work.
