Protect Your Smile with Mouth Guards and Splints

Young basketballers wearing athletic guards to help prevent broken teeth and lip lacerationsProtecting 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 mouth guards that we offer include:

Athletic Guards

An athletic guard helps prevent broken teeth, appliances, and lip lacerations. Choose from a variety of team or custom sport design options to protect your smile during the next game or practice.

Guards for Bruxism/Grinding

Chronic 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 Splints

Do 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.

Benefits of a Custom-Fit Guard

A custom made mouth guard can protect your teeth from injuries, damage to your orthodontic appliances, and even reduce your risk of concussion during athletic injuries. All we need to get started is a quick impression of your teeth. Ask us about a custom guard during your consultation or follow-up.
