Night Guards

Do you need a night guard?

According to research from the National Library of Medicine, as many as 30% of American adults may suffer from bruxism. The term is more commonly known as teeth grinding. It often happens while sleeping. Most of the time, the individual doesn't realize they're doing it.

 

You may have bruxism if you notice unexplained:

  • Jaw pain

  • Headaches

  • Tooth damage 

At Ayden Family Dentistry, Dr. Monica Molini is trained in identifying bruxism and offering solutions. Oftentimes, she will recommend a custom-fitted night guard. These devices, worn at night while sleeping, cover the teeth to shield against potential damage.
