Occlusal Guard / Night Guard in Fairfax, VA

An Occlusal guard, which is more commonly referred to as a night guard or occlusal splint is a very specialized orthodontic device, custom designed to prevent Bruxism (Night time teeth grinding)

Occlusal Guard or Night Guard

 

An Occlusal guard can be used to alleviate the pain and discomfort that is a result of nightime teeth grinding. Bruxism can result in tooth damage, i.e chipping or cracking of perfectly good tooth. This can easily be prevented using an occlusal guard at a relatively much more lower cost than a cosmetic restoration.

 

We recommend that patient's that are aware of teeth grinding should talk to Dr. Le about an Occlusal Guard. Unlike the over the counter one-size-fits all guards that can be found in the local stores. The Occlusal guards provided by My Fairfax Dental are properly custom fitted and created from the patient's dental impression. thus they are far more precise in fit and comfort.
