Here at NuSmyle Dental, we are proud to offer athletic guards and night guards to our patients.
We use mouthguards as a way to protect your teeth from grinding. Many people cause a lot of damage when they grind their teeth at night. Mouthguards are also used during sports activities since many people like to clench their teeth. Mouthguards also protect your teeth and jaw in case you get hit in the face.
We offer different types of mouthguards depending on your needs. Some are pre-formed while others are customizable so that they fit your mouth perfectly. We offer mouthguards for your top teeth, though some people need to have mouthguards for both their top and bottom teeth.
Many people also clench their teeth while playing sports, which can give them temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ). Clenching your jaw the whole time can be quite exhausting. Mouth guards help to relax your jaw, allowing you to completely focus on the game!
After a thorough examination, we would be happy to discuss your options so that you can protect your teeth from grinding during the night and during sports.
