Custom Night Guards in Tamarac, Hollywood, and Plantation

Welcome to Ideal Smiles Dental Care, where we offer expertly crafted custom night guards to patients in Tamarac, Hollywood, and Plantation. Our dedicated team is committed to providing solutions that not only protect your teeth but also improve your overall oral health.

What Are Night Guards?

Night guards are protective oral appliances worn during sleep to prevent the damaging effects of teeth grinding (bruxism) and jaw clenching. They are custom-made to fit comfortably over your upper or lower teeth, providing a barrier that reduces stress on the teeth and jaw.

Why Use a Night Guard?

  • Prevents Teeth Grinding and Clenching: Night guards are an effective solution for bruxism, a condition where you unconsciously grind or clench your teeth, especially at night.
  • Protects Teeth: Regular grinding can cause tooth wear, fractures, and even loss. Night guards protect against this damage.
  • Reduces Jaw Strain and Discomfort: They help alleviate jaw strain, reducing symptoms of TMJ disorders.
  • Improves Sleep Patterns: By reducing teeth grinding and jaw tension, night guards can contribute to a more comfortable and restful sleep.
