Night guard

Teeth grinding and clenching ('Bruxism') is relatively common amongst adults, especially with our increasingly stressful lifestyles. Over time, continued grinding and clenching can result in significant jaw muscle tenderness and damage to your teeth. Nights guards are one of the simple, yet effective ways to manage bruxism, and prevent teeth grinding and clenching and prevent the need for extensive treatment in the future to repair damaged teeth

​Signs you may be grinding or clenching

What to expect

Night guards may be available over the counter, but most dentists would advise against these as they can be quite uncomfortable due to their generic fit. At Fine Smiles Dental, we will first examine your teeth to look for signs that may indicate you are clenching or grinding. If a night guard is indicated, we will design a custom-fit appliance at our on-site lab.

If you have any questions or concerns relating to teeth grinding or jaw pain, please contact us and we’d be glad to help organise a consultation with one of our dentists.
