Night Guards Hamilton, NJ
At Dental Harmony of Hamilton, we can recommend many different types of dental guards that offer the best comfort and protection from bruxism. Bruxism is the habit of clenching or grinding the teeth. For many people who suffer from this disorder, the end result may mean headaches, tender muscles of the jaw, clicking of the jaws, teeth sensitivity and worn and/or cracked teeth.
The reason why someone has bruxism is not fully known and may have different causes. A custom-made night guard can protect teeth from the damaging effects of bruxism. Current new guards that are indiscrete and comfortable can also provide protection during the day for habitual clenchers.
One product we have chosen to offer to our patients for comfort is SofTouch. It is a remarkable occlusal splint developed by Annalan Laboratory. It eases insertion and eliminates anterior trauma and pressure. With its strong outer shell of heat-cured acrylic and its soft inner acrylic liner for tissue and tooth-bearing surfaces, SofTouch is comfortable, durable and offers valuable protection to patients with destructive bruxing and clenching habits.
