Mouthguards

Accidents can happen at any time on the field. A properly fitted Mouthguard can prevent broken teeth as well as injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw.

Anyone who participates in a sport that carries a significant risk of injury should wear a custom fitted Mouthguard. This includes a wide range of sports like football, rugby, hockey, basketball, baseball, gymnastics and volleyball. A properly fitted Mouthguard is especially important for people who wear braces or have fixed bridge work.

Over the counter mouthguards do not fit as well nor do they provide the anticipated and necessary protection to help prevent dental facial injuries. The only sports mouthguard that should be worn is that made from a model of the mouth. Patients have individual requirements for fit, comfort, level of competition and compliance. Our professionally designed custom made Mouthguards satisfy these requirements. They also have the additional benefits of being easier to speak and breath with compared to over the counter mouthguards.

Night-guards

Over 30% of the population damage their teeth at night from Bruxing. Bruxing is more commonly know as clenching or grinding your teeth. Night-guards help prevent damage to teeth such as cracks, wear and the breaking of restorations. These small comfortable appliances are worn in the mouth similar to an Orthodontic retainer or sports mouthguard.

People who suffer from Bruxism unintentionally bite down too hard at inappropriate times, such as while they are sleeping. Many people are unaware that they have Bruxism.


If you wake up with any of the following symptoms you may be suffering from Bruxism:

  • dull headaches
  • facial pain
  • a sore or clicking jaw
  • painful teeth

Bruxism may be caused by stress, an unconscious attempt to smooth out a poor bite, sleep disorders or teeth that are missing or crooked.
