A bite (occlusal) guard is a special type of mouthguard that is typically worn at nighttime and used to treat bruxism, or teeth grinding, and clenching. A bite guard may be recommended to protect your teeth from traumatic, irregular tooth wear. Many people who suffer from bruxism are unaware of the condition because it occurs while they sleep. Common signs of nighttime teeth clenching and grinding include: chronic facial/jaw/ear pain, frequent headaches or migraines, excessive tooth wear, and increased tooth sensitivity.
