Dental Night Guards in Central TX
Are you experiencing pain in your jaw when waking up? You might be grinding or clenching your teeth at night, which is known as bruxism. Bruxism occurs due to unconscious tooth-grinding during sleep and it can cause some serious oral health issues if left untreated.

Waking up in the morning with a sore jaw is not pleasant, and this discomfort can indicate an issue of misalignment of your jaws. If left untreated, fractures may form on your teeth, eventually leading to tooth loss or loosening. Fortunately for you, our dentist at ACE Dental of Texas, offers night guards which can protect against these conditions from worsening!
Have You Been Grinding Your Teeth? Let Us Assist You!
Do you frequently experience tension, facial pain, jaw discomfort or headaches when waking up? Bruxism may be the culprit – it is an excessive grinding of one’s teeth and/or clenching of one’s jaws while sleeping. If this sounds like a familiar pattern to you, then further investigation into bruxism could be beneficial.
If you find yourself not knowing if you may be grinding or clenching your teeth at night until a visit to the dentist reveals considerable damages like tooth enamel loss, chipped teeth, and receding gums – then the team at our dental office will likely recommend getting a protective nightguard. With its help, one can protect themselves from further damage occurring while they sleep.

Process of Night Guard Fitting
Night guard fitting is a process that helps people who suffer from bruxism—the unconscious grinding and clenching of teeth at night—to reduce the amount of wear and tear on their teeth. It involves taking an impression of your upper and lower teeth, then creating a custom-fitted oral appliance to be worn while sleeping.
- To guarantee a perfect fit, impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth.
- Taking your impressions as a guide, the night guard is carefully constructed out of resilient and reliable plastic.
- Once the night guard has been crafted, we guarantee a snug fit that comfortably rests within your mouth.
- Make sure to put on the guard every night as you drift off into a peaceful sleep.

Are You Informed on the Benefits of Custom Night Guards?
When it comes to protecting your teeth, a custom-made night guard is the way to go. This dental appliance resembles an athletic mouthguard and sits between the top and bottom teeth while you sleep, preventing them from grinding together which can cause damage if left unchecked. Not only does this type of guard offer maximum protection for your pearly whites, but it also provides comfort as compared to bulkier off-the-shelf alternatives that are often ill fitting and uncomfortable.
To stop your bruxism from worsening, book a session with our Texas-based dentist to acquire custom fit night guards. We have locations all over Texas, if that’s more convenient for you! With the help of these mouthpieces, you can get the relief required to keep your teeth safe while sleeping.
Here at our dental office, we’re dedicated to ensuring your long-term oral health. So in addition to providing you with a night guard for bruxism, our team can give you tips on other ways to help manage the condition – like making time for relaxation activities every day!
