Protect Your Teeth with Customized Night Guards and Mouth Guards


Custom-fit mouth guards are prescribed and created by Dr. Cheung from thermoplastic material and are based on a detailed mold taken of your mouth and teeth. They can be made for night time bruxism (teeth grinding) and are created differently than a sports guard. They’re highly personalized, as Dr. Cheung can adjust the thickness of the mouth guard, and they’re designed to fit perfectly in your mouth with no adjustments needed.

Bruxism Treatment with Dr. Cheung


Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a bad habit that can wreak havoc on your teeth. If you grind your teeth when you are stressed, angry, or even when you are sleeping, you may damage your teeth and cause bite problems. Dr. Cheung will work with you to help break the habit of teeth grinding. An occlusal adjustment and repairing of the teeth with reconstructive procedures may also be needed.

How Bruxism Affects Your Oral Health

Many patients with a habit of grinding or clenching their teeth do not realize how much this habit can negatively impact their oral health. Putting excess pressure or stress on the teeth can wear down the tooth structure, trigger a tooth fracture, or cause TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. Bruxism can cause some oral health and general health problems including:

Earaches
Chronic headaches
Sore muscles
TMD symptoms
Hearing loss
Changes in the appearance of the face

Teeth Grinding Habits

Cut back or eliminate caffeine from the diet
Avoid alcohol
Break habits of chewing on anything other than food
Pay attention to the mouth when chewing different types of food
