Question about night guard in relation to teeth grinding

Jul 5, 2022
I am a very heavy teeth grinder (especially when I sleep at night) due to stress.

I recently saw my dentist and he recommended that I get a night guard. He had already done the moulding.

Unfortunately, when I shared it with other people, they told me a night guard would make it worse because the teeth will still continue to grind against the night guard and the enamel of the teeth would just wear off when it grinds against the night guard itself.

Is that true? I read online and it says it depends on the material of the nightguard itself but I just realised that I simple said "Yes" to my dentist without asking too much about the night guard or the material with which it is constructed from.
