Mouthguards are for the prevention of tooth damage while playing contact sports. Custom mouthguards provide a better, more comfortable fit than traditional boil-and-bite mouthguards and can be made in the color of your choice. Give the game your all without the risk of breaking a tooth!
Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly common for patients to clench or grind their teeth. The habit of grinding one’s teeth outside of normal chewing is called bruxism and can have disastrous effects on your teeth if left unchecked. Progressive wearing down of teeth from grinding predisposes the teeth to more decay and increases their risk of fracture. Additionally, grinding and clenching habits can contribute to temporomandibular joint disfunction (TMD) that can become increasingly painful. Custom nightguards can be a conservative measure to combat bruxism and TMD.
