If you or your child play sports either for fun or professionally you always run the risk of injuring your teeth while practicing your favorite sport. We recommend wearing an appliance that will allow you to protect your teeth and your child’s teeth from getting damaged. Mouthguards are very easy to make and can prevent you from loosing or fracturing your teeth while playing your favorite sport.
Occlusal Guards (sometimes called “night guards”)
Occlusal Guards are appliances that can be worn during the day or while sleeping to reduce the chances of fracturing or wearing your teeth. It also helps reduce the stress that is placed on the TMJ from these parafunctional habits. Stress is part of our everyday lives and nightguards will help reduce the effects of stress on your teeth!
