Night Guards protect your teeth from damage.

At Flagship Dental, we offer custom night guards that are safe and comfortable to wear while you’re sleeping. If you are experiencing bruxism, TMJ disorder, or tension headaches, a night guard may be the solution for you.

Using our modern technology, we’ll take an impression of your bite to create an acrylic night guard that’s perfectly fitted to your teeth. We’ll make sure it fits you comfortably before sending you home to incorporate it into your nightly sleep routine.

Why Do People Get Night Guards?

Night guards protect your teeth while you sleep so you can finally find relief from pain caused by bruxism (unconscious teeth grinding and clenching) and TMJ disorder (temporomandibular joint disorder).

Millions of people have one or both of these conditions, which can be caused from stress, anxiety, or even poor sleep.

You might not realize you have bruxism because it’s often done unconsciously while you’re awake or sleeping. Here are some of the common side effects and symptoms of bruxism:

  • Morning headaches
  • Jaw soreness (such as TMJ disorder)
  • Facial pain
  • A worsening tooth sensitivity
  • Worn-down or chipped teeth
  • Damaged fillings

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, you don’t have to keep suffering. Our custom-night guards will help you stop grinding your teeth at night, thus reducing and even eliminating your pain altogether. Plus, night guards will prevent more serious tooth and jaw problems down the road.

FAQs About Night Guards

Understandably, our patients often have a few questions about night guards. We’ve provided more information here to answer the most frequently asked questions.

How Much Do Night Guards Cost?

Custom night guards cost approximately $500 on average. Some insurance companies may help cover the cost of night guards, but it will depend on your specific provider and plan.

Can I Wear a Pre-Made Generic Night Guard?

While non-custom night guards are cheaper than custom night guards, we don’t recommend them for severe cases of bruxism. Because they are not fitted to your teeth, they won’t be as comfortable and can cause your teeth to shift. They will also not last as long as custom night guards, and are generally not as safe to wear while sleeping.

When Will I Notice Results From My Night Guard?

The night guard will start working the first night you use it, in that it will help lessen symptoms associated with grinding your teeth throughout the night. Improvements in bruxism or TMJ disorder pain will depend on your individual situation. You may notice less pain the first day you wake up, or it could take longer for the pain to resolve.

Will My Night Guard Be Uncomfortable?

You may experience some irritation and discomfort when you begin wearing your night guard while sleeping. Expect it to feel a little strange at first, but in time you should get used to it.

You should not experience pain while wearing your night guard. This can be caused by ill-fitting night guards, such as generic ones that are not custom-made for your mouth. If your night guard is causing pain, contact your dentist.

How Long Will I Have to Wear a Night Guard?

The amount of time you need to wear your night guard depends on your personal scenario. Mostly, we’ll want to be sure that you’re no longer at risk of teeth grinding and clenching. Ideally, you will no longer be experiencing the stress and anxiety that caused your bruxism to start.

If you reach a point where you’d like to stop wearing your night guard, please contact us so we can evaluate your progress.
