A night guard is a plastic dental appliance that fits over the top teeth. When grinding or clenching, much of the force will be transferred to the night guard instead of to the teeth. 

Upper guards are typically recommended because they don't remove easily compared to lower teeth night guard. Lower guards are often more comfortable and easier to get used to. The ideal night guard should protect all your teeth while not affecting your natural bite.
