Types of MouthguardsProtecting your smile is one of the most important things you can do. Especially if you’re involved in athletic activities, grind your teeth at night, or suffer from TMJ disorders. Some of the different types of mouthguards that we offer include:
Athletic GuardsAn athletic guard helps prevent broken teeth, appliances, and lip lacerations. Choose from a variety of teams or custom sport design options to protect your smile during the next game or practice.
Guards for Bruxism/GrindingChronic clenching and grinding can cause your teeth and other dental restorations to wear down or break. A custom guard can protect your smile from premature wear.
TMJ Bite SplintsDo you suffer from TMJ disorder, chronic headaches, or wake up with pain through your face, head, and neck? An NTI appliance is a small, custom-fit splint that moves your TMJ into a resting position, preventing excessive muscle tension. We can combine your bite splint with orthodontic therapy to correct your misaligned bite – which may be the root of your TMJ disorder.
