Occlusal Guards

Occlusal guards (commonly call night guards) are used many times to help people from the effects of night time grinding (called bruxism).  A well made guard is made of very hard acrylic (plastic) and is made with high regard to ones correct bite (occlusion).  It is this careful regard for ones bite that usually separates a guard that is worn on a nightly basis from those that are not worn at all.

Occlusal guards have many other uses including relieving acute pain associated with a problematic TMJ which usually includes moderate to severe headaches, clicks and pops of the joints and muscle discomfort.
