Applications of Night Guard

Night guard helps minimize the bruxism. Bruxism may have several root causes including:

  • Psychological factors such as stress and anxiety;
  • Deformity of teeth;
  • Properly paired upper and lower jaw teeth when placed on top of each other
  • Respiratory problems such as sleep apnea;
  • Deformity of teeth or deficiency in their number;
  • Using cigarettes and alcohol.

What Is Night Guard?

Some people have bruxism in their sleep for a variety of reasons. Bruxism can cause many problems for a person, such as:

  • Teeth wear;
  • Cracks on the enamel, lip filling and severe fractures on the surface of the teeth;
  • Tooth decay;
  • Excessive pressure on the tissues around the teeth and gingival resorption;
  • Causes pain in the teeth and jaw;
  • Pain, discomfort, and cramping at the temporomandibular joint in front of the ear;
  • Breathing problems during sleep;

Therefore, it is necessary to treat bruxism or at least reduce its negative effects. To treat bruxism, the causes must be addressed. For example, if the cause of bruxism is stress and anxiety, the candidate may need to take sedatives as their doctor prescribes.

One way to reduce and prevent the damaging effects of bruxism on teeth and jaws is to use a night guard for the teeth. The night guard rests inside the mouth and between the teeth, so the night guard absorbs the forces that the teeth normally exert on each other. Night guards are made of different materials depending on the severity of bruxism.

Types of Night Guards

Hard Night Guard
This type of night guard is made of acrylic and is used in severe grinding.

Double Laminated Night Guard
This night guard has a softer and hybrid material. The bilaminar night guard is good for medium teeth.

Soft Night Guard
This is the softest night guard and has a shorter lifespan than other types. This night guard is helpful for mild bruxism.

There are also dental guards for exercising that are similar to night guards. The difference is that the sports mouth guard absorbs foreign forces exerted on the teeth during sports activities to prevent sudden and severe forces on the teeth, jaw, lips and cheeks. This type of dental protector is generally thicker than night guards.

Types of Night Guards in Iran And How They Are Made

Pre-Made Night Guard
This type of night guard is available for purchase in pharmacies and in three different sizes. This type of night guard is not very expensive but is less accurate and comfortable than other types.

Boil And Bite Night Guard
Similar to pre-made night guards, this type of night guard is available in pharmacies. The difference is that it fits better with your teeth. To use this type of night guard, the user must first put it in boiling water. After about a minute or less, the user must take the night guard out of the boiling water and allow it to cool down enough to be tolerable for the tissues of the mouth. Then they should put it in their mouth and press it with their teeth, finger and tongue to fully align the night guard in the mouth. Once the night guard is completely hard, the user can remove it from their mouth. If after this step the user feels the night guard does not match enough, they can put it back in boiling water and repeat the steps from the beginning.

Custom or Handmade Night Guard
To make this type of night guard, the candidate must see a dentist. The dentist uses a special material to make a mold from the teeth and sends the mold to the lab to have the night guard made specifically for you. This type of night guard is fully compatible with your teeth. Therefore, a custom night guard is the best and most convenient type of night guard.

While night guards are generally for maxillary teeth, there are night guards that only cover the surface of some teeth.
