Night Guards

A dental night guard is a customized removable appliance typically worn during the overnight hours to prevent teeth from contacting and grinding against one another. 

Excessive jaw grinding and clenching, called Bruxism, can cause headaches, generalized tooth pain, cracked teeth and TMJ problems. Typically this nighttime grinding is caused by stress or anxiety - often unknown to the patient - and is non-preventable. Night guards help prevent the negative oral side effects of bruxing.

Dr Gausmann is great at what he does. He does a perfect job at explaining your options and makes sure you’re in no pain. They honestly do care about their patients. They squeezed me into their booked schedule because I was in severe pain. I would highly recommend Dr Gausmann and his team!
