Night Guards

Redlands, CA dentist, Dr. Steve Tatevossian, educates patients on teeth grinding and how it can negatively impact the oral health of his patients. Teeth grinding is common and affects approximately 10 – 15% of adults. It can lead to chipped teeth, movement, tooth pain, headaches, and other symptoms, which can end up damaging the teeth, leading to expensive dental problems.
High quality, custom night guards, which can be fitting right in our office at King House Dental, then made at a professional dental library, can help patients overcome this condition, also known as bruxism. Night guard helps patients, who grind their teeth or clench their jaw while sleeping, so they can sleep better while protecting their teeth and jaw.

What to Expect From Night Guards 

During a dental appointment with Dr. Tatevossian, impressions are made of the upper and lower teeth, and then sent to our lab so the final device can be made. This custom-fit guard is sent back to our office where we work with the patient, ensuring that it fits properly and showing them how to care for it.
Wearing the appliance nightly is important for the overall success of overcoming teeth grinding.

Night Guards FAQS

  • After Care

    The night guard can last for several years with proper home care. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Depending on the type of material used when making the mouth guard, the dentist will give the patient more specific care instructions. Patients should bring their night guard to all future dental appointments so the dentist can check for general wear and decide when it needs to be replaced.

  • Pricing

    In many cases, dental insurance usually covers a portion of the cost for custom-night guards, especially when ordered by a dentist for teeth clenching. Compared to over-the-counter night guards, custom night guards are more expensive, but are usually more effective in curing and overcoming teeth grinding while sleeping.

If you are one of millions of Americans who wake up with tooth pain, a tight jaw, headaches or mouth pain, consult with King House Dental Group about a custom night guard that can protect your teeth from grinding and clenching. Redlands, CA dentist, Dr. Steve Tatevossian will ensure you are able to get a better night's sleep, but more importantly, protect your teeth from serious damage.
