Night Guard or occlusal guard that is fabricated is a custom made guard that aligns with your jaw joints and fits your own biting scheme. This "balance" scheme is designed to pacify the involved facial muscles and distribute the biting forces.

Night Guard is a horseshoe shaped piece of plastic which is worn over the teeth to protect them against damage caused by teeth clenching and grinding. It works by creating a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth so that you bite against the plastic rather than wearing down your teeth.
