About Night Guards
Bruxism, also known as grinding of the teeth, is a common condition that affects millions of patients. Beachwood Dental's phenomenal team of dentists recognize the stress and pain that can be caused from excessive grinding or clenching of the teeth at night. Not only is pain caused in the patient, but the grinding is also unhealthy for the teeth's overall structure, leading to weaker teeth as a result. We offer to our Los Alamitos, CA patients who are suffering from bruxism night guards that are custom made to fit their individual teeth and mouths. Patients can then sleep with peace of mind knowing that their teeth are protected from bruxism and any damage that may be caused by it. Our night guards are comfortable and are designed to uniquely fit each patient. We encourage everyone suffering from the effects of teeth grinding to schedule a consult today to have their night guards custom made for them.
What to Expect
Our dentist will make impressions of the upper and lower teeth and take digital X-rays, which will be sent to a dental laboratory. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to our dentist. Patients will have their new night guard checked and fitted by our dentist, who may make minor adjustments for comfort.
While fitting the night guard, our dentist will give the patient more specific care instructions on how to clean and store their night guard. With proper care, a night guard can be used for several years. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Our dentist will check for general wear at regular dental appointments and determine when the night guard needs to be repaired or replaced.
