If you’re experiencing chronic headaches and migraines by involuntary night-time teeth clenching, let Dr. Jarwa at Grace Dental of Virginia help you with a dental night guard. A dental night guard is a thin transparent device that is worn over the biting surface of your teeth while you sleep to prevent contact between the upper and lower teeth. There are four basic kinds of night guards:

-full hard material.
-full dual material (soft inside and hard outside)
-full soft
-NTI which is partially covering the front teeth.

Based on your needs Dr. Jarwa will recommend the most suited one for you. There is no one size fits all.

The Dental Night Guard Fitting Process

-Impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth to confirm an accurate fit.
-Using your impressions as a mold, the dental night guard is crafted out of strong, durable plastic.
-When the dental night guard is finished, it is properly fitted to your mouth.
-Simply wear the dental night guard while you sleep every night.

Benefits of a Dental Night Guard

-prevents migraine pain.
-prevents tension-type headache pain

If you have a night guard made by your previous dentist that you don’t use because of ill fit, Dr. Jarwa will be happy to evaluate it for you. A mild adjustment can make a big difference for you at a fraction of the cost of new one.
