The main function of a night (bite) guard is to prevent bruxism. Bruxism is the technical term for clenching and grinding. It is an unconscious habit that usually happens when we are sleeping. Most people do not even realize they are doing it. It can happen while you are under stress, in deep concentration or when you are angry.
Habitual grinding or chewing your upper and lower teeth together can cause wear and tear to your teeth, chipping and even complete breakage of the teeth, joint tenderness, popping, clicking and headaches.
