Custom Mouth Pieces and Sports Guards in Centennial, CO

Night guards, also known as mouth protectors, are recommended for our patients who suffer from nighttime teeth grinding and clenching, which is also called bruxism. Night guards are an effective dental treatment that can greatly reduce your risk of tooth damage and decay caused by nighttime grinding. When left untreated, bruxism can result in several painful and serious symptoms, including:

  • Frequent migraines and tension headaches
  • Very worn down, flattened, cracked, or chipped teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Tightness and a tired feeling in the jaw muscles
  • Chronic facial pain and ear pain
  • Indentations on the side of the tongue
  • Excessive wear on the tooth enamel, exposing the inner layers of the tooth

Because teeth grinding and clenching typically occurs while you sleep, you may be unaware that you suffer from bruxism. If you notice any of these symptoms, we encourage you to contact our talented dentist, Dr. Harmon, as soon as possible. At Harmon Dental, we provide custom-fit night guards for your optimum protection and comfort. A night guard in Centennial, Colorado is designed to fit over your teeth to protect them and to treat bruxism.
