Night Guards Q &A

Am I a good candidate for a night guard?

If you wake up with a throbbing and tender jaw in the morning, you might grind your teeth or clench your jaw when you sleep. Some people also experience distressing headaches and toothaches, as well. This is a condition called bruxism, which affects both adults and children.

The exceptional dentists and denturists at Virginia H. Ellis, DDS Dental Corp can help alleviate the symptoms of bruxism by creating a night guard that you wear on your teeth while you sleep.

The dental team uses an impression of your teeth to design and create a high-quality night guard that's specially made for your teeth and mouth. Since the night guard is tailor-made for you, it's comfortable enough to wear while you sleep and prevents you from grinding your teeth.

If you don't wear a night guard but continue to grind your teeth, you run the risk of doing severe damage to your teeth over time. You might find yourself in need of veneers, crowns, or other cosmetic dental work, especially if you cause damage to permanent teeth.

What is a snore guard?

A dental snore guard is an oral device that helps correct mild to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea. There are several types of snore guards. An experienced dentist will evaluate the severity of your snoring and sleep apnea to recommend the most effective snore guard for you.

What is sleep apnea?

Intense, troublesome snoring is typically one sign of sleep apnea. When it's associated with this disorder, snoring isn't the primary cause for worry. The numerous problems that snoring can trigger are the real concern. Adults with sleep apnea have to deal with waking episodes and sleep disturbances that wind up causing unfortunate health issues when left untreated.

Do snore guards work?

When designed to fit your mouth, a snore guard can substantially improve the side effects and symptoms of severe sleep apnea and snoring. Wearing a snore guard while you sleep can lead to:

  • Better airflow
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Reduced snoring frequency
  • Less noisy snoring

If you suffer from loud snoring, unrestful nights of sleep and a sore jaw in the morning turn to Virginia H. Ellis, DDS Dental Corp for help.
