In order to protect your teeth and our dental work, an occlusal guard, or night guard, may be fabricated if you grind your teeth. They are made from a hard acrylic which is not comfortable to grind. Severe grinders may grind the acrylic, but at least the teeth are well protected. For most, they do not grind and sleep better. Since teeth grinding could be a sign of an airway obstruction, we may ask that you take our home sleep test before fabrication to rule that out.
