Nightguard for Bruxism – Teeth Grinding

Bruxism or teeth grinding is a common issue that can cause extensive damage to your smile. If you constantly clench your jaw or grind your teeth in your sleep, this can create extreme wear and tear on your teeth. While you can use stress-relief techniques to stop jaw clenching when you are awake, you may need protective gear to protect your teeth while you sleep. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we offer customized dental nightguards for bruxism as part of our family dentistry treatments to help protect your smile.

When you jaw clench or grind your teeth, you are putting hundreds of pounds of pressure on your teeth. The grinding motion of the jaw and teeth is meant to crush tough food fibers, but if no food is there, that crushing effect happens to your teeth. This can cause fractures or cracks in the teeth, weakening their structure and putting them at risk for decay and infection. Those with bruxism will often wear down the enamel on their teeth, which can lead to tooth sensitivity and higher incidences of decay, as well as bite alignment problems.

Dental Nightguards – Protection for Your Smile

A dental nightguard offers a protective covering for your teeth that can reduce wear and tear on your smile. Our dentist can create a customized nightguard for your teeth that is comfortable and easy to use when you sleep each night. This can prevent teeth grinding and clenching, or at least minimize the damage to your teeth. Plus, your sleep partner will appreciate the quiet nights without the sound of grinding teeth that can keep some people awake at night.

If you are a teeth grinder, do not let this problem destroy your smile. Contact our office and schedule an appointment to discuss using a customized dental nightguard to protect your teeth from bruxism.

"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
