There are multiple types of dental guards designed to protect your teeth, which include dental night guards and sports guards.
Many patients unknowingly suffer from teeth grinding—also known as bruxism—as they sleep. Fortunately, thanks to advances in dental technology, we can now offer a solution for this prevalent problem. Our office provides special dental night guards that are made to reduce and/or eliminate the harmful effects of bruxism, such as jaw pain and wear on the teeth. The night guard is customized to fit your mouth, and offers superior comfort, allowing you to continue to sleep without discomfort.
It’s very important to protect your smile if you participate in sporting activities. Anyone who has ever been involved with a sport knows that with it comes a significant risk of injury to the teeth, tongue, lips, and cheeks. For that reason, we always recommend that athletes should wear a sports mouth guard, especially if you participate in high-impact sports such as football, baseball, gymnastics, and volleyball. The best type of sports guard for you will be able to fit securely in place as you engage in any sport, all while allowing you to speak and breathe easily.
