Nightguards

Custom Nightguards in Las Vegas NV

What Are Nightguards?

Nightguards, a dental care staple, are meticulously and precisely crafted oral appliances — designed to protect teeth and jaws from nocturnal grinding and clenching, known clinically as bruxism.

These guards, made of durable materials such as acrylic or soft plastic, are worn while sleeping and provide an effective barrier against potential damage.

Nightguards are crucial tools for treating bruxism here at Millennium Dental. They offer more than just protection. They provide patients with a uniquely tailored and effective way to safeguard their oral health while alleviating associated symptoms.

As meticulously crafted oral appliances that fit each patient’s unique bite pattern, nightguards provide personalized protection and comfort for a good night’s sleep. 

Benefits of NightGuards  For Our Patients

  • Teeth Protection: Nightguards protect teeth from the damaging effects of grinding and clenching, reducing enamel wear. These oral appliances, typically made of durable materials such as acrylic or soft plastic, which cushion the teeth, mitigate the risk of bruxism-related chipping, fracturing, and erosion.
  • Jaw Pain Prevention: Bruxism can cause muscle tension and jaw pain, including temporomandibular joint disorders. Nightguards significantly alleviate this discomfort by promoting proper jaw alignment and reducing muscle and joint strain, providing much-needed relief and comfort.
  • Headache Reduction: Prolonged teeth grinding and clenching can cause tension headaches and migraines. Nightguards reduce the intensity and frequency of nighttime grinding, lowering the risk of waking up with a headache. 
  • Dental Work Protection: Nightguards serve as a shield, protecting dental restorations like crowns, bridges, and veneers from damage caused by bruxism. This not only helps extend the life of dental work but also significantly reduces the need for expensive repairs or replacements, offering a promising outlook for long-term oral health. 
  • Sleep Quality Improvement: Nightguards improve sleep quality by creating a comfortable barrier between upper and lower teeth for patients with bruxism. This barrier prevents the grinding and clenching of teeth, which can disrupt sleep. Patients who grind and clench their teeth less can sleep better and feel refreshed, leading to improved overall well-being. 
  • Oral Health Prevention: Bruxism can lead to tooth sensitivity, gum recession, and tooth loss. Nightguards help reduce these risks by treating the underlying cause of bruxism and protecting the teeth and supporting structures from damage.
