Here at Greenfield Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer mouth guards and nightguards to our patients.
Nightugards are used to protect your teeth and mouth. Many people grind their teeth at night, which can cause a lot of damage. In many cases, it is beneficial for those who grind their teeth to wear a nightguard while sleeping.
Mouth guards can also help prevent damaged from grinding teeth, but they are also helpful during sports activities. They can help your teeth and jaw from receiving any damage that may come from accidents, such as a blow to the face. Whether or not the sport you play is high-impact, you may find it helpful to wear a mouth guard, just in case you clench your teeth during the game.
There are many types of mouth guards and nightguards. Some are pre-formed, while others are customized to fit your teeth and jaw. Most mouth guards and nightguards are used only on your top teeth, though some people need to have them on both their top and bottom teeth.
After a thorough examination with our dentist, we would be happy to discuss your options for protecting your teeth from grinding during the night and damage during your favorite sports activities.
