Night Guards

Merion Village Dentistry night guards provide immediate relief for symptoms of bruxism.

Did you know that your tooth enamel is so strong, it’s considered to be harder than any other material in your entire body? When teeth wear against one another during bruxism (grinding), it can cause teeth to be worn down prematurely or even cause TMJ problems. Bite splints are a great way to stop and prevent future damage from grinding.

A custom fit night guard from Merion Village Dental prevents bruxism from causing:

Broken restorations such as fillings or crowns
Chipped, fractured teeth
Flat, prematurely worn teeth
Strain of the TMJ
Headaches and migraines

A night guard is a great way to prevent the need for future treatments like replacing existing restorations, or TMJ therapy. Each splint is a custom-fitted, small acrylic piece that is worn when you sleep. The night guard prevents the teeth from touching, which eliminates wear as well as prevents straining of muscles in the face.
