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.
"Anyone who is hesitant about these five stars review, HAVE NO FEAR. I would 10/10 recommend this clinic to ANYONE who asks (or doesn't). I was in town for my wedding and I visited my dentist in the area to get my final Invisalign check/retainers. I also wanted to straighten out my front tooth because it had chipped in the Invisalign process since I used to bite my nails. It made me super self conscious especially since I was going to be taking a ton of photos for my wedding this weekend and it had been bothering me since I got my attachments taken off. I had asked my dental clinic if they could even it out, but the dentist was not in so they weren't able to do anything for me... I was definitely 110% freaking out and so so sad. My dental office referred me to Beachwood Dental and Dr. Todd answered the phone. He so willingly accepted me last minute and really tried to work around my hectic schedule. I was late since I was running last minute errands and didn't expect them to take me so quickly (I called Thursday early afternoon, they told me to come in later that afternoon!). They were still able to fit me in with such warm attitudes and smiles. Dr. Todd, Stacy, and everyone in the office were so lovely, really (& I definitely don't say that lightly). They were able to fix me up (I couldn't even tell the difference!!!) and sent me on my way. I am forever thankful to this awesome team and appreciate you all (even if Dr. Todd is a USC fan...GO BRUINS). Thank you, Beachwood Dental!!!!"- H.S. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018

They’re even calming and comforting for people like me who get nervous when I go in. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great dentist!! JullieG~"- J.G. / Google / Aug 18, 2018
"The hygienist only uses the "Scraponater" (the ultrasonic tooth cleaner/scraper) on the heavy deposits not for the whole cleaning job. That thing feels like I'm scraping my teeth on a blackboard. The cleaning job is almost always done completely by hand. Then there is the digital X-Ray machine. Precious little radiation compared to the regular kind and the view is almost 3D. Teeth all bright and shiny, quick and painless. What more can you ask for?"- D.K. / Yelp / Aug 18, 2018
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.
