When patients need to protect their smile, they often turned to custom-designed night guards and mouth guards. Our practice offers oral appliances made from medical-grade flexible plastics which are molded to fit precisely over the dental arch. Patients who are participating in high impact physical sports and activities such as basketball, football, and boxing may want to utilize a mouth guard to protect their teeth, gum tissues, cheek lining, tongue, and jaw in the event of impact. Night guards are used for patients who experience bruxism, which is the clenching and grinding of the teeth during the night. These can protect natural tooth enamel as well as restorations in the smile such as porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and bridgework.

If you would like to find out if a dental guard is best for your specific needs, contact our practice today. We can evaluate your smile, take impressions of the teeth, and send the molds to a quality laboratory for the fabrication of your own custom-fit mouth guard or night guard.
