About Night Guards
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, affects over 10 – 15% of adults and can cause jaw pain, headaches, tooth pain, swelling, and other symptoms. Over time, teeth grinding can damage the teeth and cause expensive dental problems. High-quality, custom night guards can be made at a dental laboratory from impressions taken at Cosmetic Dental Studios in Midtown Manhattan with cosmetic and general dentist, Dr. Victoria Veytsman. A custom-made night guard helps patients who grind their teeth or clench their jaw while sleeping so they can sleep better while protecting their teeth and jaw.
"I recently got veneers, and could not be more pleased with how they turned out!!!! Dr. Veytsman and her team were sooooo nice and extremely accommodating to my very tight timeline. They always made sure I was well taken care of and completely happy. I am more confident with my smile and no one can ever notice that they are veneers as they look so natural. Dr. Veytsman is amazing at what she does!!!!"- IB / Office Visit / Jan 08, 2019

What to Expect
Once the patient decides to get a night guard, they will schedule an appointment at Cosmetic Dental Studios to have impressions of the upper and lower teeth made. The impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where a custom-fit night guard will be crafted for the patient. Once the night guard is returned to Cosmetic Dental Studios, the patient will come in to have their night guard fitted by Dr. Veytsman.
The night guard can last for several years with proper home care. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Depending on the type of material used when making the mouth guard, Dr. Veytsman will give the patient more specific care instructions. Patients should bring their night guard to all future dental appointments at Cosmetic Dental Studios so Dr. Veytsman can check for general wear and decide when it needs to be replaced.
Compared to over-the-counter night guards, custom night guards are more expensive, but some, or all, of the cost may be covered by the patient’s dental insurance if it is medically necessary. A night guard custom fit by Dr. Veytsman at Cosmetic Dental Studios can be an investment, but they are more comfortable and last longer than store bought night guards.
