A night guard is an appliance similar to a retainer used to correct misaligned teeth, an under or over-bite, and commonly to correct teeth grinding (bruxism). Night guards are thin, horseshoe shaped and made from hard but moldable plastics.
An effective night guard should never restrict your speech or breathing, and they should be comfortable enough not to interrupt your sleep. In most cases, the mouth guard will cover your upper teeth only; however Dr. Gruner can also provide his Wellington, Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens and West Palm Beach patients with a mouth guard to cover the lower teeth as well.
