Night guards are the restorative dentist’ way of caring for the patient long after the hard work is done. These are relatively simple devices that can be made in only two days. Please note, all of our night guards come clear and if not specified, will fit on the maxillary arch.

Night Guard Uses

Night Guards will not wear or stress your teeth.  They will allow for your porcelain crowns to have a long life of use.  We recommend for all our All on Four patients to receive one as well. This will help with breakage of teeth and result in less wear. They are also useful in patients who may be experiencing TMJ symptomatology.

Maxillary or Mandibular?

Most night guards are maxillary but most can also be made on the mandible. It is preferable to use the classic Angle classification.

  • Class I: Maxillary or Mandibular
  • Class II: Maxillary
  • Class III: Mandibular
