We can provide these kind of guards in Frisco, TX without a prescription. You simply come by the clinic so that we can fit you with the right sized guards. These guards are easy to apply and provide the ultimate protection for your teeth at night. We are here to help you with all of your dental needs.
What is Teeth Grinding?
Teething grinding, or bruxism, can be painful and highly destructive to your teeth. What’s worse is that you are doing it while you are asleep. When you are sleeping, you may feel a certain level of anxiety or stress. As a result, you may grind your teeth or clench them together as hard as possible.
Since you are unaware of this activity, you can damage your teeth by chipping or cracking them. In addition, you can also cause yourself to have a headache or a toothache. You may wake up the next morning in a lot of pain and not know why you are hurting.
What Are Night Guards?
Night guards are a device that you insert in your mouth just before you lie down to go to sleep. To use the device, you boil it (to kill all the germs), let it cool for a few minutes, and then bit into it. The warm device will naturally form to fit the shape of your mouth.
We provide high-quality guards that offer an exceptional fit, long-lasting durability, and peak comfort. Although you can get these guards at any pharmacy, we recommend that you purchase them from a dentist’s office. You will quickly notice how long they last and how much better they perform when compared to guards you purchase over-the-counter.
Your main concern is finding guards that can protect your teeth and keep them from chipping or cracking when you grind them.
Types of Guards
There are three main types of night guards that we offer, including:
- Soft guards
- Dual laminate guards
- Hard guards
Soft guards offer the most comfort of all other guards. They are easy to adapt to and are low-cost. However, the material may be too soft if you have a strong clench. Plus, they are a short-term solution. So, you may end up spending more money to replace them over an extended period.
Dual laminate guards can handle heavier clenching and grinding. Plus, they last longer than soft guards. However, they may be too thick for your mouth, or they may not adjust easily to your teeth.
Hard guards offer the highest durability of any night guard. They also come with a warranty. Best of all, they keep your teeth from shifting when you attempt to grind. They may be too thick for your mouth. Plus, they may not be as comfortable as soft guards.
