A night guard is a type of mouth guard that is used to prevent nighttime teeth grinding and clenching. Also known as bruxism, teeth grinding and clenching can cause serious damage to the teeth, as well as significant pain and discomfort. Because teeth grinding and clenching often takes place during sleep, many people who suffer from bruxism are unaware of it. You may suffer from bruxism if you experience the following symptoms:
- Migraines and tension headaches
- Teeth that are flattened, worn down, cracked, or chipped
- Pain or tightness in the jaw muscles
- Tired jaw muscles
- Chronic facial pain
- Worn tooth enamel
