Sports Guards & Night Guards
Mouthguards come in many different styles, but not all mouthguards are created equally. Store-bought mouthguards often do not provide the necessary protection or comfort offered by a custom mouthguard made by a professional. Protect your teeth while playing sports, the risk is not worth it.
If you frequently wake up from sleep with jaw pain, cheek pain, headaches or sore teeth, you might be grinding your teeth while you are asleep. This condition, bruxism, affects about 15% of all adults, according to the American Dental Association. A night guard is an appliance worn while sleeping that functions in preventing teeth grinding. There are also other ways of preventing and reducing bruxism. The most important thing to know about bruxism is that it can be treated with the help of a dentist.
