Dentist MouthGuard

Dentist Mouthguards are recommended to protect the jaw and teeth during physical activity and sports such as boxing, football, basketball, or activities where your mouth may get hit. Custom dentist made mouth guards are made of flexible plastic and molded to fit the shape of your teeth. In addition, a dentist mouthguard will protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining.

Dentist Nightguards are another type of appliance also recommended for patients who clench or grind their teeth at night as a way to protect their teeth and the jaw joint (TMJ). If you and your dentist have decided a guard is right for you, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth which will then be sent to a lab to make a custom fit guard for you. There are different types of night guards for different situations. We will recommend the one we feel is most appropriate for you. On average, nightguards last between 3 and 10 years.
