Night Guards

Dental Night Guards in Chicago, IL

Whether you have temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and clench your teeth during the night or you simply find yourself grinding your teeth in your sleep, West Town Dental Care has the solution for you. We offer two different types of night guards that will help protect your teeth and keep your smile picture-perfect.

Occlusal (Night) Guards

A night guard is the most common treatment option for the symptoms of TMD. Clenching or grinding your teeth at night can damage the enamel of your teeth beyond repair, and a night guard allows you to sleep comfortably while protecting your teeth from erosive habits.

A night guard is a plastic appliance that is professionally made by your dentist at West Town Dental Care. The appliance is worn at night and can either be worn on the top or bottom arch. It is designed to protect the teeth from the pressure of clenching and grinding by providing a protective cushion between the upper and lower teeth.

This is the perfect solution for patients with bruxism (clenching and grinding) and chronic jaw pain. Our mouth guards can help relax your jaw and allow you to rest easy. A night guard is a simple, non-invasive, affordable treatment option for protecting your teeth and jaws from the damaging effects of bruxism.

NTI Night Guard

The NTI night guard is a small appliance worn at night to prevent bruxing, clenching, and muscle pain associated with muscle dysfunction. Unlike a traditional night guard, the NTI is very small and only covers the front teeth.

The NTI night guard protects the teeth, muscles, and joints by reducing the intensity of jaw clenching while you sleep. Patients tend to love the NTI because it is more comfortable, less bulky, and won’t trigger a gag reflex. The NTI has been proven to be an excellent alternative to full-coverage night guards.

"Dr.O was Awesome. Had a root canal done today. Didn’t feel a thing. I go back in 2 weeks, hopefully nothing but greatness! I was really nervous due to other people telling me about their experiences with root canals. This is my 1st time here, hopefully my new dentist.

"I couldn't be any happier with my experience at West Town Dental. I arrived about 15 mins before my appointment and was already being seen about 10 mins before my scheduled time. Dr. Ogando took care of 4 fillings I needed. He was extremely kind and easy to talk with. He answered any and all questions I had. The hygienist, Sky, gave me an amazing cleaning and was an artist with her tools. Super impressed by the kindness of all the staff and highly recommend."
