Your new solution for better sleep and pain relief.

Find Better Sleep With This Quick Fix

Are you wondering if you need a nightguard?

Maybe you think an oral appliance will feel like you’re ready to play contact sports. Well, we’re happy to inform you that’s not the case.

A nightguard is a small appliance that keeps your top and bottom teeth from being in direct contact, protecting them from the pressure you might apply in your sleep. So, no more waking up to your partner saying, “Hey, you’re grinding your teeth again.”

Not sure if you’re grinding your teeth? Here are a few signs to watch out for:

  • Tight or sore jaw muscles
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Tooth pain or sensitivity
  • Pain or aches around the ears or temple
  • Headaches

A nightguard even relieves jaw tension if you clench in your sleep.

Dr. Collier will recommend an appliance specific to your needs.

How Can a Nightguard Make Your Life Easier?

Got Questions? We Have Answers For You!

  • Do nightguards really work?

    A dental nightguard prevents any further damage to your teeth by providing a cushion effect. We’ve seen our patients find success with using a nightguard. If you end up needing more than a nightguard to meet your needs comfortably, we offer a variety of other services.

  • Can you grind through a nightguard?

    Your nightguard will immediately protect your teeth. However, a nightguard doesn’t solve the root of your problem. Unfortunately, finding the solution to grinding isn’t as much of a quick fix. Often, the cause of teeth grinding can be stress.

  • How often will I need a new nightguard?

    We recommended that you replace your nightguard every 6-8 months for the best results.

    Signs you need a new nightguard include:

    • Tear or crack in the material
    • Discoloration
    • You’ve had your nightguard for over a year
