Wear Guard

Commonly known as a Night Guard, is an appliance made of plastic material, custom fitted for a patients mouth, is used for purposes of protecting teeth from:

  1. Grinding and Clenching(Bruxism).
  2. To relieve Jaw-Joint & Jaw Muscles pain issues(known as "Temporomandibular Joint Disorder-TMD")

Even though the term night guard is used very commonly, every patient presents different issues requiring wearing the guard not only at night but sometimes during the day as well. Dr. Patel has sought extensive education in this field. The wear guards fabricated in our office are made with careful evaluation of patient's symptoms. Its not as simple as taking impressions of your jaws and fabricating an appliance. Dr. Patel uses a step by step approach that involves careful evaluation of how your muscles, teeth and joint interacts with each other to fabricate an appliance that not only protects teeth but also prevent muscle and joint issues. Please let us know if you experience such issues or would like to know more.
