Night Guard Q & A

Am I a good night guard candidate?

If you wake up with a throbbing and tender jaw in the morning, you might grind your teeth or clench your jaw when you sleep. Some people also experience distressing headaches and toothaches, as well. This is a condition called bruxism, which affects both adults and children.

Dr. Parish and his exceptional team can help relieve the painful signs of bruxism by creating a night guard that you wear on your teeth while you sleep. 

The dental team uses an impression of your teeth to design and create a high-quality night guard that's specially made for your teeth and mouth. Since the night guard is designed and made just for you, it's comfortable enough to wear all night and stops you from grinding your teeth while you sleep.

Choose not to wear a night guard but continue to grind your teeth at night? Over time, you run the risk of damaging your teeth. You might find yourself in need of veneers, crowns, or other cosmetic dental work, especially if your permanent teeth are damaged.

What is a snore guard?

A dental snore guard is an anti-snoring oral device. It's designed to help patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Parish assesses your sleep apnea and snoring symptoms to recommend the best, most effective type of snore guard for you.

What are the warning signs of sleep apnea?

Constant snoring is typically one sign of sleep apnea. When it's associated with this disorder, snoring isn't the primary cause for worry. The numerous problems that snoring can trigger are the real concern. Adults with sleep apnea suffer from sleep disturbances and waking episodes that, if left untreated, could lead to grave health problems.

How can a snore guard help me?

A snore guard that your dentist constructs for your mouth can substantially reduce the most troubling side effects of mild to moderate sleep apnea. Wearing a snore guard while you sleep can lead to:

  • Improved airflow
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Snoring less during the night
  • Less noisy snoring

If you suffer from loud snoring, unrestful nights of sleep, and a sore jaw in the morning, turn to Dr. Parish for help. Our friendly team can help improve your oral health and the quality of your sleep with custom dental snore guards and night guards. Call or schedule a consultation online today.
