Night Guards in Franklin TN

At Longpoint Dental in Franklin, TN, we understand the importance of a good night’s sleep and the impact it has on your overall health. If you wake up with jaw pain, headaches, or notice signs of wear on your teeth, you may be grinding your teeth at night. Dr. Anne Marie Ellis and her team are here to provide you with a customized dental night guard to protect your teeth and improve your oral health.

What are Night Guards, and How Do They Work?

A dental night guard is a protective device worn over your teeth while you sleep. These guards are designed to prevent the damage caused by teeth grinding (bruxism) and clenching, which can lead to serious dental issues if left untreated. At Longpoint Dental, we create custom night guards tailored to fit your mouth perfectly, ensuring maximum comfort and effectiveness.

What Are the Benefits of Using a Night Guard?

Using a custom night guard offers numerous benefits for your dental health and overall well-being:


  • Prevents Tooth Damage: Protects your teeth from the harmful effects of grinding and clenching.
  • Reduces Jaw Pain: Alleviates the stress on your jaw muscles and joints, reducing pain and discomfort.
  • Improves Sleep Quality: Helps you achieve a more restful sleep by minimizing disruptions caused by teeth grinding.
  • Custom Fit for Comfort: Our night guards are tailored to fit your mouth perfectly, ensuring maximum comfort and effectiveness.

How Do I Know If I Grind My Teeth at Night?

Many people grind their teeth at night without even realizing it. Common signs and symptoms of bruxism include:

  • Waking up with a sore jaw or headaches
  • Flattened, chipped, or loose teeth
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Disrupted sleep patterns

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s essential to consult with Dr. Anne Marie Ellis. During your appointment, she will conduct a thorough examination and discuss your symptoms to determine if a night guard is the right solution for you.

What Dental Issues Can a Night Guard Help With?

Mouth guards are not just for preventing teeth grinding. They can also help address a variety of dental issues, including:

  • Jaw Pain and TMJ Disorders: Night guards can alleviate the stress on your jaw joints and muscles, reducing pain and discomfort associated with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ).
  • Tooth Wear and Damage: By providing a protective barrier, night guards prevent the excessive wear and tear that grinding and clenching can cause.
  • Improved Sleep Quality: Reducing the strain on your jaw and teeth can lead to better, more restful sleep.

Dr. Ellis will customize your night guard to ensure it addresses your specific dental needs, providing you with the best possible protection and comfort.
