Night Guards

Night guards are particularly helpful for those who suffer from teeth grinding, or bruxism. Understanding when you might need a night guard, what to expect from this dental service, and the benefits it offers can help you make informed decisions about your oral health.

If you wake up with jaw pain, headaches or notice signs of teeth grinding, such as worn-down enamel or increased tooth sensitivity, you may need a night guard. Individuals with stress, anxiety or misaligned teeth are often prone to bruxism, making night guards a valuable solution to prevent further dental issues.

Dr. Zan Pervaiz will start by taking digital impressions of your teeth. These impressions are used to customize a night guard that fits comfortably in your mouth. Once ready, our dentist will provide instructions on proper usage and care. Night guards are typically worn during sleep to protect your teeth from the effects of grinding and clenching.

Night guards offer several benefits, including the prevention of tooth damage, alleviation of jaw pain and reduction of headaches caused by bruxism. By providing a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth, they help maintain the integrity of your teeth and promote overall oral health. Regular use can contribute to a better night’s sleep and improved quality of life.

We invite you to call 703-349-0099 to schedule your consultation at Heritage Dental Arts to discuss your options for night guards in Gainesville, Virginia.
