Most dentists recommend patients who grind or clench their teeth at night to wear a niteguard , either hard or soft. Niteguards provide an artificial occlusion which is kinder to the teeth and more restful to the jaw muscles. There are many possible designs and most people can find a type that they would be willing to wear. nite guards also protect the teeth from cracking or chipping at night from unconscious clenching or grinding taking place at night during sleep.
