What Are Night Guards?

When you go to sleep at night, your brain sends signals to the rest of your body to completely relax and recharge. While this is ideal for your arms, legs and the rest of your body, many people experience problems when their tongue and jaw becomes too relaxed. During sleep, it is common for the jaw to slightly move back, which results in possibility of the tongue covering the trachea. If airflow is constricted from the trachea to the brain, a host of other problems can develop.

With the help of a personalized night guard, you can avoid these health concerns. A night guard that is fitted by Dr. Gordon will help to keep your jaw and tongue in place, which will then allow you to get a better night’s sleep. In addition, because a night guard from Dr. Gordon is made specifically for you, you can ensure that it will fit comfortably and not affect your ability to rest peacefully at night.

What Are the Benefits of Night Guards?

One of the benefits of night guards is to help you sleep better at night. However, that is not the only reason that you may want to consider a night guard.

People also grind their teeth during sleep. Over time, this grinding can result in damage to the surface area of the teeth, which will result in the need for dental treatments to fix the problems. However, you can avoid this if you consider an oral night guard.

Your sleeping habits may be affecting others besides you. Here at Karen Gordon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we’ve worked with many patients who have spouses who are affected due to problems that a person is experiencing while sleeping. For example, grinding of the teeth can be so loud that it may result in the spouse waking. The same goes for snoring, which can also be minimized with the help of a night guard.

A customized night guard from Dr. Gordon can help you with:

  • Avoiding damage that occurs due to grinding teeth
  • Limiting snoring due to a blockage of the trachea
  • Getting a better night’s rest and waking up feeling refreshed.

We offer night guards for both children and adults, so contact us to learn more about the option is best for you or your loved one.
