Night Guards – A Permanent Solution To Headache And Tooth Grinding!

Night Guard is a device for the mouth that is used to protect the teeth, arches, lips and gums. Dentists useNight Guard to treat Bruxism (grinding of teeth) or TMD.

A night-guard is a mouthpiece used to protect your lips, gums, teeth and arches. It covers the teeth and gums to protect patients from grinding or clenching. Night Guard acts as a strong barrier between the upper and lower teeth during sleep.

Apollo, one of the most advanced Ballantyne dentistrycenters, designs custom-fit Night Guardsthat prevent people frombruxism-related tooth damage by decreasing the impact of teeth clenching and grinding.

Usually, there are three types of Night Guards that a patient can pick from.
1. A ready-made appliance that comes in standard sizes.
2. The boil-and-bite device that offers some customization.
3. The personalized appliance that dentists prefer and commonly prescribe.

At Apollo, the most popular dentist Charlotte NC, our super specialist team prepares Night Guards to provide patients with comfort and proper tooth function.

We made Night Guards using three simple steps-

Preventative Dentistry

Teeth Impression

Ready-to-wearNight Guards are different from the custom-made Night Guards as they are made to fit the patient’smouth precisely. We make it possible by taking an impression of the mouth. A negative copy of the lower and upper teeth is taken so that a plaster cast or model cast can be prepared from it which is used by the experts in the dental laboratory to make the custom-fit Night Guard.

Night Guard Creation

In the fabrication of Night Guard, dental mold plays a key role. The material (hard acrylic, dual laminated or soft) is formed around the mould to form a perfect-fitting shielding barrier between the upper and lower teeth. The Night Guard can be prepared for both the upper as well as the lower teeth. Once the Night Guard is fabricated, our experts use the mold to check how the Night Guard fits and how the bite comes together. If necessary, we can do some changes.
