FAQ about Night Guards

On the last blog, we discussed about night guards - it's materials, reason behind its necessity, etc. In this blog, we'll go over some of the common questions asked by our patients. Let's make it short and sweet!

Q: How long does a custom dental night guard last?

A: With proper care, custom night guards can last several years, making them a cost-effective long-term solution.

Q: Is wearing a night guard every night safe?

A: Absolutely. Our night guards are custom-made for patients to safely use nightly.

Q: Are there any materials that I should avoid in the night guard? 

A: Many times, dental night guards may contain BPA, Latex, phthalates, and gluten. It is important to discuss night guard material with your biological dentist to ensure it does not contain harmful substances. 

Q: Can I clean my dental night guard normally?

A: Yes, our holistic dental team will provide you with specific instructions for cleaning and maintaining your night guard to ensure its longevity and effectiveness.

Q: What if my Night Guard does not fit properly?

A: If the night guard is not a proper fit during the delivery appointment, our holistic dental team member will adjust it to ensure a perfect fit, or remake the appliance for you.

Q: Is there a difference between upper and lower night guards? 

A: Yes. Human's upper jaw is made of two bones that can move minimally during sleep. Hence engaging it with a thick, hard night guard will not allow the movement, hence, interfere with sleep. When we prescribe a night guard, our holistic dentists will recommend the type of night guard based on your sleeping habits, your griding an clenching severity.
