Stop the Grind of Teeth Grinding

Do you grind your teeth at night? Do you find yourself with your jaw tightly clenched for no reason?

You may be one of many who suffer from bruxism, a condition that causes you to grind and clench your teeth. Trü Orthodontics will work with you to provide the best night guards in Fairfax.

Night Guards Overview

Is nighttime teeth grinding causing discomfort and disrupting your sleep? Night guards, also known as dental guards or occlusal guards, are protective devices worn in the mouth to prevent the harmful effects of teeth grinding (bruxism) and jaw clenching while you sleep.


Night guards provide relief for:


Teeth grinding

Jaw clenching

How Night Guards Work

Night guards are made from various materials, including soft dual-laminate, and hard acrylic, each suited to different levels and types of grinding and clenching. They work by creating a physical barrier between the upper and lower teeth, which helps to protect the teeth from wear, chipping, and cracking caused by the force of clenching or grinding. They help distribute the pressure to alleviate strain on the jaw joints, potentially reducing the risk of TMJ disorders. By cushioning the jaw muscles, night guards can lessen the pain and discomfort associated with bruxism, including headaches and facial pain. Many patients find this improves their sleep quality too.

What to Expect

At Trü Orthodontics Fairfax, your visit for a night guard begins with a thorough examination by one of our Fairfax orthodontists.
