We provide custom-design mouthguards and nightguards. Both of these products serve unique purposes, each tailored to specific dental needs.

Athletic Mouthguards 

These are crafted from a thick, flexible, and elastic material designed to protect teeth and soft tissues during physical or athletic activities such as boxing, football, basketball, or any pursuit with a risk of impact to your mouth. They offer crucial defense against injuries to your teeth and jaw. Athletic mouthguards are bulkier and provide a snug and comfortable fit to ensure optimum protection.

Nightguards for Bruxism

In contrast, night guards are made from rigid acrylic or hard plastic material. Their primary function is to protect teeth from clenching and grinding during sleep. This prevents damage to teeth, including abnormal wear, cracks, tooth sensitivity, and bite and jaw/TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) changes. Night guards also play a vital role in preventing TMJ and facial muscle discomfort and pain. By inhibiting the constant activation of muscles involved in clenching and grinding, night guards offer relief from discomfort during the night.

In terms of appearance and feel, athletic mouthguards and night guards are noticeably different. Athletic mouthguards are bulkier and designed for physical activities, while night guards are custom-fit and less bulky, snapping comfortably into place over your teeth.

When considering a custom mouthguard or nightguard, it’s essential to understand these distinctions and choose the right one based on your specific needs.

Investing in the right guard ensures both your dental safety during physical activities and protection from the effects of teeth clenching and grinding during restful nights.
