Your teeth are a crucial part of your speech, diet, and even your facial structure. As such an integral element in your life, it’s important that you protect them from damage or harm. Investing in a mouthguard can help keep your teeth safe through any activity.
Athletic mouth guards can help protect the teeth and jaws from injury. Mouth guards can be made from a dental impression taken in the office for the best custom fit.
A custom fit mouth guard is more comfortable than a stock or boil and bite guard. Patients are more likely to consistently wear a mouth guard that is comfortable.
Be it at night or during the day, plenty of patients clench their jaw or grind their teeth without even realizing it. We recommend that patients “check in” with themselves during the day and see what position their teeth are in. Many people clench and grind at their desk and while driving. These habits can lead to wear on the teeth.
If wear is not prevented and becomes severe, it may lead to cracked teeth and tooth sensitivity. Many patients will notice a change in the appearance of their overall smile as the front teeth will appear shorter.
A night guard is a “mouth guard” made of a hard acrylic material that is adjusted to each patient to protect the teeth and help relax the chewing muscles that contribute to jaw pain and headaches.
