Bite (bruxism) Appliances

Bite (bruxism) AppliancesĀ in South Brunswick

Night Guards, also known as bruxism appliances, are the mainstay of treatment for patients who are experiencing discomfort in and around their temporo-mandibular joints (TMJ’s). Bruxism appliances are recommended for people who grind or clench their teeth to minimize damage and excessive wear that grinding and clenching can cause. The appliance is usually designed to wear while sleeping when many people clench and/or grind their teeth unconsciously.
