Occlusal Night Guards

Occlusal night guards are made of a combination of soft and hard plastic like materials, and are custom made to fit on the upper arch. They are recommended in cases where the patient is grinding their teeth during their sleep. A patient may grind without making noise necessarily, and common signs are recession of the gum tissue and wear of the teeth, which is noted by the dental care personal. Common symptoms are headaches, stiff neck, and masticatory muscle soreness. Now days, teeth grinding is seen very often.
