A night guard is a custom-made, tooth-supported device that can be used for protection and prevention of the clenching and grinding of teeth at night. Dr. Mitt may suggest different types of guards depending on your particular needs, such as soft guards for children or hard guards for adults who are dealing with excessive grinding and clenching. Whatever type of guard is chosen, it should provide some relief from discomfort and also help to protect delicate jaw joints from the wear and tear caused by frequent teeth grinding.
