Occlusal guards, often called night guards, are acrylic mouthpieces used to help protect your teeth. During your night's sleep, nearly everyone clenches or grinds their teeth at some point. Including those who are mouth breathers, if you clench your teeth for even five minutes in a night, it adds up.
A night guard that is custom fitted by Dr Tajalli is an appliance that will protect your teeth if grinding or clenching were to ever occur during your nights rest. It is especially important to use a night guard if you have any implants, crowns, veneers or root canals in your mouth.
