Night Guards

Dr. John Lohner, Dr. James Standring and Dr. Latecia Miller recognize the importance of a good night’s sleep for your overall health, including the well-being of your teeth. To address this, we offer custom-fitted night guards, a vital solution for individuals who suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding, during sleep. Our night guards are specifically designed to prevent the wear and tear on your teeth that often results from this unconscious habit.

Understanding Night Guards

Night guards are tailor-made dental appliances that you wear over your teeth while sleeping. They serve as a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth, cushioning them and effectively preventing damage caused by grinding or clenching. This protective measure not only safeguards your teeth from excessive wear but also helps in alleviating jaw pain and other discomforts that are commonly associated with bruxism.

The Process of Fitting Night Guards

At Lexington Heights Dental, the custom fitting of night guards involves a precise and comfortable process. We start by taking an accurate impression of your teeth to create a detailed model of your mouth. Using this model, we then craft a night guard that fits snugly and comfortably over your teeth. After the night guard is prepared, we schedule a follow-up visit to make any necessary adjustments, ensuring it offers the perfect fit for maximum comfort and protection during your sleep.

Benefits of Wearing a Night Guard

  • Prevents Tooth Damage: Shields teeth from wear and chipping due to grinding.
  • Reduces Jaw Pain and Discomfort: Eases symptoms of TMJ disorders related to bruxism.
  • Improves Sleep Patterns: Contributes to a more comfortable and uninterrupted sleep.
  • Custom-Fitted for Comfort: Tailored specifically for your mouth.
  • Long-Term Oral Health Protection: Aids in maintaining overall dental health and integrity.
