As part of our commitment to meeting all of your dental needs, we are proud to offer our patients mouth guards and night guards at Salem Family Dental Care. Mouthguards and night guards are designed to protect your teeth and gums and treat a wide variety of dental conditions. Dr. Bansal, Dr. Chawla and Dr. Jun, our practiced dentists, will be able to determine what type of mouthguard you need.
Mouthguards, generally, are used for athletic purposes and are also called athletic or sports guards. They are meant to prevent injury and trauma from occurring to your smile during high-contact or intense physical activity. The most common sports in which mouth guards are recommended include wrestling, rugby, football, and hockey. We can make custom sports guards for children, teenagers, and adults.
Nightguards are made for our patients who suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding. Teeth grinding can make your smile susceptible to tooth decay and cause strain on your facial and jaw muscles. Bruxism is also known to cause headaches and migraines. Night guards, made of strong durable plastic, protect the surface of your teeth and alleviate pain.
