To protect your teeth from wear and tear, Dr. Dillon may recommend a custom night guard. These preventive appliances are often used to protect against bruxism or teeth grinding. Created from impressions of your teeth, custom night guards will provide you with comfortable and effective treatment. When you wear your custom night guards as prescribed by Dr. Dillon, they can be used to effectively:
- Provide some headache relief
- Treat TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems
- Prevent wear and tear on the teeth
Custom night guards will not inhibit your normal breathing at all when worn correctly. We invite you to call or visit Dillon Dental in West Los Angeles today if you have been diagnosed with a TMJ disorder or bruxism. We will be happy to tell you if night guards or another preventive dentistry treatment is right for you.
