Nightguard

SERVING GRIFFIN AND HAMPTON AS YOUR FAMILY DENTIST

If you notice chipped or cracked teeth, but don’t remember when the injury occurred, there’s a good chance you damaged your teeth while you were sleeping. Grinding or clenching your teeth during the night will cause your teeth to chip, crack and even break.

To keep you from seriously damaging your teeth, Allred Family Dentistry recommends a dental appliance called a nightguard, which protects your teeth from grinding and clenching in your sleep. Your dentist takes great care in making sure you have a proper fit to prevent pain in your jaw joint. Ask your dentist about having a nightguard custom created for you.
