Night and Sports Guards
Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. To help our patients most comfortably avoid this, we customize night guards to their bite. One type of night guard acts as a cushion between the top and bottom dental arches while the other creates more space between the front teeth to prevent the top and lower jaw from touching. Sports guards are great for any kids or adults active in contact as well as non contact sports. Help protect your teeth against Sports-related injuries as well as your own jaw clenching down!
