Night Guards & Sports Guards
Night Guards (Also called Occlusal guard and bite guard)
Occlusal guards are used for people who clench or grind their teeth or have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Our lab fabricates a dual layer acrylic guard that is soft on the inside for comfort and hard on the outside for durability. We take impressions in our office then send them to the lab where the guard is custom made for a perfect fit. These professional guards are much higher quality than what you can buy over-the-counter, and since they’re custom made instead of “one size fits all” they are much more streamline and comfortable to wear. Not only can an occlusal guard provide relief for your joints, they also protect your teeth from the harmful wear caused by clenching and grinding. We often suggest guards for patients who have had crowns or veneers placed on their front teeth to protect their investment from chipped porcelain caused by night time clenching and grinding.
Sports guards play the vital role of protecting your teeth during physical activity. We fabricate high quality custom mouth guards to protect your teeth during contact sports or any activity that could subject your teeth to injury. The custom fit of our mouth guards is far superior to the fit you can get from an over the counter “boil and bite” guard. We can even give you a choice of three different colors and adding your name or number!
