Protect your teeth with a custom fit mouthguard.
Mouthguards are a simple solution to help protect the teeth during physical activity. Custom made mouthguards fit snugly and comfortably over the teeth, offering an extra layer of protection. Patients of all ages can benefit from mouthguards.
For children and adults who play sports, custom-made mouthguards can help protect the teeth and reduce the risk of tooth loss and tooth damage. Custom made mouthguards can be designed to fit securely over the teeth and any oral appliances or braces. Store bought mouthguards may not fit correctly, causing slippage and minimal protection against sport related dental injuries. Most patients will find that a custom fit sports mouthguard is more comfortable and fits securely around the teeth allowing for better focus on the field.

Mouthguards|Nightguards For Teeth Grinding
For patients who grind their teeth or have been diagnosed with a TMJ disorder, we may recommend the use of a nightguard. Nightguards are similar to mouthguards and are typically worn at night to prevent the teeth from grinding and clenching. A nightguard allows the jaw muscles to relax and minimize muscle tension and stress on the teeth.
Creating a custom nightguard is similar to the process of creating a mouthguard. Dental impressions are taken and sent to a dental lab for fabrication. The goal is to create a comfortable, secure, and custom fit.
