How a Night Guard Prevents Bruxism
When you clench your teeth or grind your teeth at night, this is called bruxism. This is highly dangerous to your teeth. One of the most common, and effective, fixes is to invest in a mouthguard. This puts a soft barrier between your teeth. That way, when you put pressure between your teeth, the only thing getting damaged is the mouthguard itself. Sometimes, having a mouthguard can stop the behavior entirely. Other times, you have to go through and get a new mouthguard every few years as it gets worn out. Contact our office today if you struggle with bruxism in your sleep.

"Without a doubt the best dental office I've ever been a patient of. The dentists and their hygienists are all very friendly and knowledgable, and they do their best to make you as comfortable as possible. I haven't tried other dentists in Eugene, but I know I'm not alone in my opinion here… definitely recommend!" ~ Timothy
"Dr. Vivona was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't be happier with my experience. While I wish I didn't need dental work, my experience with her has been great. She takes her time to make sure she's properly diagnosing. While doing the work, she was gentle, thorough and explained everything along the way, making sure I was comfortable. I highly recommend her" ~ Audrey
"I was greeted as I was walking in the door by two wonderful assistants. The hygienist was wonderful and encouraging through the whole exam. Over all the staff is the best I’ve encountered through dental and would recommend Dr. Vivona to anyone looking for quality and gentle care." ~Kimmi
