There are several different types of guards and appliances to protect your teeth. Two of the most common ones are sports guards and bite (or night) appliances. We provide customized guards and appliances that are designed to fit the contours of your mouth. Custom guards are usually more comfortable and provide more protection than off-the-shelf guards.
These appliances are worn at night to prevent you from clenching or grinding your teeth. Both conditions can damage your teeth and can lead to conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). By keeping your jaws from moving while you sleep, the appliance is one of the best treatments for grinding.
Mouth guards are mandatory equipment for most high-impact sports, but they can help protect your teeth while you play any sport. Custom guards protect your teeth from impacts to your face and can prevent painful broken or knocked out teeth.
