TMJ & Night Guards
Grinding your teeth down to little stumps is no fun, neither is waking up with a sore jaw. Maybe it’s time you thought about protecting those pearly whites with a night guard.
TMJ also known by its full name the Temporomandibular Joint is the amazing joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull. Many people have clicks and pops but unless it is causing limited opening and pain, it is likely a benign problem. Muscle pain is the most common result of clenching and grinding your teeth at night. Getting a night guard also know as an occlusal guard at Dental Designers in downtown Rockford, IL can help minimize the symptoms of parafunctional movements like clenching and grinding your teeth. The night guard will also significantly protect teeth from extensive wear due to grinding.
Two Appointments – 30 mins each
Getting a night guard made at Dental Designers is easy and quick. We take impressions of your teeth then send the models of them to the lab for fabrication of the night guard. When it comes back from the lab, we will schedule a short appointment to ensure that it fits properly on your teeth.
At Dental Designers, we are very proud of the experience we provide because we treat every appointment as a relaxing spa visit, complete with DoTerra essential oil aromatherapy, warm neck wraps, and serene spa music. We have chosen to make dentistry feel like a special treat that you don’t have to do but GET to do!
