Digital Nightguards

If you suffer from teeth grinding, clenching, or bite-related issues while you sleep, you could be causing severe damage to your teeth and jaw without even knowing it. People have cracked and broken their teeth and developed TMJ, all from issues related to their teeth position while sleeping. Thankfully, there is a solution, a nighttime mouthguard or nightguard.

However, traditional nightguards take a while to make, and the fit could be more comfortable. Thanks to recent advancements in dental technology, it is now possible to get a custom-fitted night guard made in a fraction of the time. It’s called a digital nightguard.

How is a Digital Nightguard Made?

A standard night guard, or any mouthguard for that matter, is usually made by taking an impression of the patient’s teeth and creating a mouthguard for the desired purpose based on the impression or mold. This can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, and the fit may need to be more precise. The problem with normal dental impressions is that they are invasive and use a material that sticks to the teeth and is quite unpleasant for patients.

Digital technology is now available that makes it possible to scan a patient’s mouth and create a computerized 3D image of their mouth that can be enhanced and modified with the help of the computer.

This speeds up the impression process, makes it less invasive, and produces an image of much higher quality. This makes it possible for our dentist in Houston to create a unique customized night guard for the patient in much less time than a traditional mold.

With a digital night guard, it is possible to complete the entire process in one day and have a better-fitting guard. This means that you have your night guard the same day and can sleep peacefully, knowing that your teeth are protected and not at risk of grinding, clenching, or other sleep issues.
