Night Guards

Keep your teeth strong and protected

Teeth grinding is one of the most common and most destructive things people do to their teeth.  Grinding is when your upper and lower teeth move back and forth against each other causing flattened teeth.  As it gets worse, it can lead to cracks in teeth, dental sensitivity, gum recession, mobility, and even tooth loss.  Grinding and clenching can also cause migraines and TMJ pain.

Most people don’t realize they are grinding their teeth at night.  They usually only find out when they go to the dentist.  One of the most common questions asked is, “Wouldn’t I know if I was grinding my teeth?”. Well, the simple answer is, unfortunately not.  Our muscles are more hyperactive as we sleep then when awake.  If you start grinding or clenching your teeth in the daytime, your brain tells your mouth to stop.  Unfortunately, this does not happen while we are sleeping.

Many patients will say, is a nightguard uncomfortable?  To be honest, it takes some getting used to.  However, the benefits far outweigh the negative repercussions of grinding!  The process is pretty easy.  A quick impression is all it takes.  You get a custom fitted nightguard which fits perfectly to your teeth.  Your teeth stay strong and protected!

What Our Patients Are Saying

Experience exceptional dental care for the whole family.

Dr. Chand and her staff are wonderful!! I usually am not a big fan of the dentist, but my experience at McLean Family Dentistry was relaxing and very enjoyable. Dr. Chand was very professional and very helpful in making me feel less nervous during the cleaning and procedure that I received. I would recommend her hands down to anyone looking for a great dentist!

Dr. Chand and Elizabeth are so friendly and gentle, the whole family will LOVE their experience – especially the KIDS! I have to drive from Takoma Park, MD to see Dr. Chand but it is worth it.
