Rapid City Night Guards

Occlusal Night Guards

At Black Hills Area Dental, we understand that every smile is different. That’s why we offer a variety of services to meet our patient’s individual needs, including occlusal night guards. Occlusal night guards are custom-made mouthpieces that are worn at night to prevent teeth grinding (bruxism) and/or clenching.

If you or a loved one have noticed teeth grinding or clenching at night, please give our team a call! We want to help you protect your smile.


Why Do I Need an Occlusal Night Guard?

If you have noticed any of these symptoms, it may be beneficial to visit us for a night guard assessment:

  • Wearing down of the teeth
  • Pain in the jaw joint area
  • Pain in the face, neck, and shoulders
  • Headaches
  • Fractured/cracked teeth

Types of Occlusal Night Guards

At our practice, we offer a hybrid hard/soft occlusal night guard made from acrylic or another type of hard plastic. During your visit, our team can work with you to determine if a night guard is right for you and show you examples of the type of night guards that we offer, customizing your night guard to fit your preferences.

If you’re interested in getting an occlusal night guard, the first step is to schedule a consultation with us. We can’t wait to see your smile!
