Custom-made protective mouth guards are an excellent way to prevent injury when involved in a contact sport or activity. These lightweight devices are worn over your teeth to protect them from injury when impact occurs. Studies have shown that individuals who use mouth guards are less likely to experience tooth wear, oral injury and serious jaw problems when they take a direct hit to the mouth. Mouth guards are also effective in reducing concussions and lacerations to the tongue, cheeks and lips. Our custom-made mouth guards are comfortable for children and adults and do not interfere with speaking or breathing.
We also offer night guards that are designed for patients who clench and grind their teeth at night. This condition is known as bruxism, and it can cause serious damage if left untreated. Those suffering from bruxism can experience excessive tooth wear, jaw discomfort, headaches and tooth fractures. A custom-made night guard can reduce or eliminate these issues.
