Night Guards

Do you grind your teeth at night? Are your jaw muscles sore in the morning? Do you have headaches frequently? Do you have implants or bridges? Over time, you could cause serious damage to your mouth by breaking or loosening teeth. Grinding teeth can even cause neuromuscular problems.

There is a solution. We can fit you with a night guard—an orthodontic device that you wear during your sleep or even during the day—that will keep you from grinding your teeth. A night guard will reduce the stress on your teeth and jaws and alleviate many of the symptoms listed above.

Mouth Guards

When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouth guard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age. While collision and contact sports, such as boxing, are higher-risk sports for the mouth, you can experience a dental injury in non-contact activities too, such as gymnastics and skating.

There Are Three Types of Mouth Guards
Custom-fitted: These are made specifically for you by our dentist. They may be more expensive than the other versions, but because they are customized, usually offer the best fit.

Stock: These are inexpensive and come pre-formed, ready to wear. However, they often don't fit well. They can be bulky and can make breathing and talking difficult.

Boil and bite: These mouth protectors can be bought at many sporting goods stores and drugstores, and may offer a better fit than stock mouth protectors. They are first softened in water (boiled), then inserted and allowed to adapt to the shape of your mouth.

The best mouth guard is one that has been custom made for your mouth by our dentist. However, if you can't afford a custom-fitted mouth guard, you should still wear a stock mouth guard or a boil-and-bite mouth guard from the drugstore. Give us a call at (714) 409-6161 to learn more about your options.
