Night & Sports Guards

Protect your teeth when you are sleeping or playing sports

Gaurds are used to protect teeth. To make a night guard, impressions and a bite registration will be taken. A night guard will be recommended when clenching and grinding are reported, or when wear is noticed. A night guard is worn to help spread out forces and protect teeth. Athletic mouth guards are extremely important for athletes of all ages. In young patients with changing dentition simple ‘boil and bite’ mouth guards can be bought over the counter. For teenagers and adults, custom guards can be made at our office.
