Bruxing Guards

Bruxing Guards, also known as Nightguards, are custom-made guards worn to protect teeth from clenching and grinding issues.

People with TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint) problems can also benefit from the use of a Bruxing Guard or Orthotic Deprogrammer. Anyone who has clenching, grinding problems, jaw pain or clicking, or wakes up with headaches may benefit from a Bruxing Guard or Orthotic Deprogrammer.

The Process

To make your Custom-Made Bruxing Guard Dr. Nawrot will first assess your teeth and TMJ to determine the type of Guard you will benefit from the most. He will then take an impression of your teeth so your Bruxing Guard can be customized to fit your mouth comfortably. Some people with TMJ problems benefit best from a series of Bruxing Guards called Orthotic Deprogrammers which assist with repositioning the TMJ and jaw into its proper position.
