Our dentist may recommend a night guard if you have a tendency to grind or clench your teeth in your sleep. If left untreated, your enamel can start to wear down, leaving you more at risk of breakage. Night guards may also be used as part of your TMJ treatment. Call us today at 847-888-4334 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Michael Bender here at Bender Dental Care to see if night guards in Elgin, Illinois, are right for you.
