Night guards and Retainers

There are many dental emergencies that can be prevented by the simple timely use of a night guard. One of the most common causes of trauma in teeth is the grinding and/or clinching that we do at night time. Why do we clinch and/or grind? It is a form of habit or in many cases a reaction to chronic pain or discomfort. Either cause result the same set of symptoms which are as following:

Cold and/or pressure sensitivity Sensitive Teeth (Click here to read more)
Fracture and cracks which could be treated with a crown.
Cracked tooth which leads to tooth loss.
To prevent any of the above, a simple night guard is all that is needed, and of course the patient has to wear it consistently every night.
