Night guards can make a world of difference for your patients who suffer from teeth-grinding or bruxism, relieving pain and preventing further destruction of their natural dentition. At Trident Dental Laboratories, our hard/soft (H/S) night guard dental appliances are a proactive step in shielding your patients’ existing healthy dentition and restorations.
How Do the Night Guard Dental Appliances Work?
Teeth grinding or sleep bruxism is becoming an increasingly common issue that often leads to severe pain in the jaw, teeth, and facial muscles. Fortunately, these aches can be alleviated with a H/S night guard dental splint.
These mouth guards fabricated by our skilled technicians are highly customizable devices that fit over the lower or upper teeth during sleep to offset the impact of bruxism in your patients.
Based on the experience of dentists who work with us, over 10% of the American population either clenches or bruxes their teeth, which usually results in noticeable tooth damage. This is where our H/S night guard dental appliances come in – they can protect your patients’ teeth from this habit during periods of high stress or when they are asleep.
Here are a few benefits of our H/S mouth guards:
- Patient-specific and easy to customize.
- Extremely comfortable.
- Protect existing teeth and dental restorations.
- Alleviate pain in the jaw, neck, head, and shoulder.
- Recommended for patients who have veneers, implants, bridges, and crowns (to prevent the damaging effects of bruxism).
Why Choose Trident Dental Laboratories H/S Night Guards
Created from a combination of advanced digital manufacturing technology and innovative photopolymer material, our night guards are lightly thermal-sensitive and easy to adjust. They also provide improved comfort and protection for your patients and easier seating appointments for you.
Soft Night Guards: Ideal for people who grind their teeth in a mild way or unintentionally clench onto or chew the soft material.
Hard Night Guards: Ideal for people who suffer from severe cases of teeth grinding. These are made from acrylic and are very rigid to ensure high durability.
Production for all guards (Soft, Hard, and Hard/Soft) happens via a vacuum-forming process. Model are mounted, and then the material is adapted to your records. We also check excursive movements and occlusal contacts, and adjust the design if necessary.
This is why our H/S night guard dental appliances are better in quality, accuracy, and consistency than other similar products on the market. The results we deliver cannot be achieved without years of experience and expertise.
