Biteguards, Nightguards, & Mouthguards
If you participate in any kind of full-contact sport, the American Dental Association recommends that you wear a mouthguard. Also, many people grind or clench their teeth at night causing wear, cracks, fractures, and sensitivity. We can make and show you how to properly wear a bite-guard. We offer in-office and lab fabricated night-guards.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of wearing a mouth guard?
Wearing a bite guard protects your teeth from wear, fractures, and breakage caused by grinding or clenching of the teeth. The bite guard also helps prevent (TMJ) a dysfunction of the joint connecting the jaw to the skull. It is very painful and can result in the jaw locking if untreated.
When should I wear my mouth guard?
You should wear your bite guard every night and/or as directed by your dentist.
