How Do Nightguards Work?

tmj specialist in encinitas caA nightguard is a bite splint that you wear when you go to bed. It fits over your teeth like an athletic mouthguard, and in fact it looks and feels very similar to a mouthguard. However, a nightguard is made of much stronger material, so it can withstand the strong forces of your clenching jaw. Unlike an athletic mouthguard, a nightguard is also precision-fitted and specially shaped to control the way your upper and lower teeth close together.

Your nightguard can prevent your teeth from being worn down, cracked, or otherwise damaged, because it spreads out the pressure on your vulnerable teeth. It also creates a comfortable barrier between your upper and lower teeth, preventing the tooth-to-tooth contact that can cause damage during tooth grinding.

If you tend to suffer from headaches or facial pain due to teeth grinding, your nightguard can help with this, too! This type of pain is often caused by the overuse of and strain on your facial muscles that occurs from teeth clenching or grinding. When you wear your nightguard to sleep, the occlusal appliance can lessen muscle activity in your jaw. That means less muscle strain to cause pain.

Most of our patients with nightguards report that their headaches and pain was significantly reduced or fully eliminated after using our custom-made nightguards.
