Night Guards in

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, affects about eight percent of adults according to the National Sleep Foundation. This condition can cause a variety of problems, but the good news is that it can often be treated effectively with a mouth guard worn during sleep.

Night Guards in Meridian

Nighttime clenching and grinding of your teeth can lead to serious health concerns. If you experience any of the following, it is important that you address the issue promptly.

Chipped Teeth

A chipped or damaged tooth or teeth is often the first sign that your grinding has become more serious. This will require a potentially costly repair and can lead to cavities, so it's best to consider a mouth guard before more damage is done.

Chronic Grinding

If you grind your teeth most nights, a mouth guard may be necessary. While this appliance won’t stop your grinding, it can minimize the negative effects.


If you wake up with a headache every morning, it may be the result of nightly grinding. A mouth guard may help.


If you have already been diagnosed with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ or TMJD), ask us about a mouth guard. This device will prevent your teeth from clenching and grinding and reduce some of the pain associated with the condition.

The dental office has obviously had a lot of thought put into it. It has very soothing decor, and the kids’ play area and Keurig makes waiting less of a hassle. The staff was very friendly and personable and helped make the experience more comfortable overall.
