  • Athletic mouthguards help cushion blows to your face or mouth, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw.  They cover the upper teeth and are an important piece of equipment if you participate in organized sports or other physical activities.  Athletic mouthguards should be a part of your equipment from an early age.  Studies show that athletes are 60 times more likely to suffer harm to their teeth if they are not wearing a mouthguard.  
  • The best mouthguard is one that has been custom made for your mouth.  A properly fitted mouthguard is especially important for people who wear braces or have fixed bridge work.
  • Night Guards are another type of dental appliance that fits over your top or bottom teeth.  They are used to combat the effects of Bruxism or teeth grinding.
  • We all get stressed out once in a while but when some people feel anxious and tense, they grind or clench their teeth.  This can happen during the day or at night.  If your grind your teeth at night you may not even know it until complications develop.  So, it’s important to learn the warning signs.  Bruxism treatment may require you to wear a custom-made mouthguard when you sleep.  The goal is to reduce the wear and tear to your teeth, helping you to keep your healthy smile.
