Occlusal Guard (Night Guard or Mouthguard) for Teeth Grinding or Sports
Sometimes your teeth need a little extra protection. If you suffer with bruxism (teeth grinding) a night guard can help prevent further damage to your teeth. Teeth grinding can lead to more serious issues such as tooth decay or even tooth loss. If you play any type of contact sport, your teeth can be at serious risk. Before you encounter accidental damage to your teeth, ask us about a customized athletic mouthguard for you. Because these mouthguards are personalized to your anatomy, they not only fit better but are much more comfortable versus generic mouthguards.

Depending on the severity of the case, sometimes these guards are also worn during the day.
