About J&S Dental Lab
A night guard is dentally recommended for people suffering from bruxism (unconscious abnormal teeth grinding habit). Mouth guards are not designed to help stop or cure teeth grinding habit, but to protect the teeth from being worn out. As a result, they prevent jaw pains and headaches caused by teeth grinding.
J&S Dental Lab has more than 20 years of experience in producing night guards. This is one of the best custom mouth guard companies in the market. The company provide quality dental guards professionally customized for their customers using their teeth impression. The customization ensures that the guard perfectly fits an individual customer.
How Does J&S Dental Night Guard Work?
