Night Guards at Streitz Dental

We fabricate custom night guards for patients that grind their teeth during the night. It is estimated that 8%-30% of people have this habit. A night guard is a formed sheet of acrylic that fits over your top or bottom teeth, protecting the chewing surfaces from increased wear. You may not be aware you are grinding at night and the condition can go undiagnosed for many years. We aim to protect your teeth at the first signs of grinding and we evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any abnormalities related to grinding at all regular exams. Signs of grinding at night that you can look for at home include the following:

  • Waking with headaches
  • Ear aches
  • Jaw and muscle tenderness
  • Grinding noises at night
  • Chipping or thinning edges of your front teeth
  • Breaking teeth-especially those without large fillings

Drs. Streitz will take a custom impression of your teeth and will fabricate a night guard that works for your particular needs. While night guards occasionally can stop grinding all together, their main purpose is to halt increased wear.
