Night Guards

A custom fitted night guard made by Dr. Martino or Dr. Sotiroff can be used to treat bruxism (teeth grinding) and clenching. Some bruxing symptoms include headache, stress, anxiety, ear aches, and sore jaw. Night guards are usually made from a thermoplastic material that softens when placed under warm water. When it is placed in your mouth and cools down, it becomes more rigid.

Night guards help protect your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), prevent tooth damage, aid in the stabilization of your bite, and help relax your chewing or masticatory muscles. Although worn at night to protect against involuntary muscle movements, some patients wear them during the day to protect their teeth and muscles from clenching. Call us today for more information!
