Do you struggle with jaw pain and tightness? You may have bruxism, a condition marked by teeth clenching and grinding.
It can be uncomfortable — and over time, it can cause wear and damage to your teeth. We have a comfortable solution.
What Is a Night Guard?
A night guard, or mouth guard, is an oral device designed to protect against teeth grinding as you sleep. We make each night guard using scans of your mouth, allowing for the most precise fit and optimal protection.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Night Guard?
If you struggle with teeth grinding as you sleep, then you're likely a good candidate for a mouth guard. Even if you have been grinding your teeth at night for years, it's never too late for a guard. If you only struggle with bruxism during the day, you can try to manage it by reducing stress levels and massaging your jaw muscles.
Which Symptoms Can a Mouth Guard Prevent?
You may not realize that you have a teeth grinding problem or that you need a guard because you're asleep when bruxism presents. However, if you clench your teeth at night, you may notice daytime symptoms like:
- Jaw Pain
- Jaw Tightness
- Jaw Shape Changes
- Ringing in the Ears
- Neck Pain
Instead of living with pain, explore solutions at our dental office in Scottsdale, AZ. Our dentist will be happy to create a tailor-made guard for your routine clenching and grinding at night.

Mouth Guards Are an Investment in Your Oral Health
Dr. Sielicki has seen many patients with tooth damage that could have been prevented. By protecting your teeth now, you can avoid extensive dental problems that may need a more expensive fix.

Guards are an investment in your quality of life, preventing recurring discomfort and giving you peace of mind.
