As an athlete, you need the best gear possible. We offer top quality athletic mouth guards to protect your teeth whenever you practice or compete.

Mouthguards and Night Guards

A mouthguard should be considered an essential piece of equipment for every athlete who participates in contact sports and activities, both adults and children. It cushions the blow when you are hit and can prevent serious injuries that may result in a lifetime of oral health problems. Our custom-made mouthguards are crafted from lightweight, comfortable, and effective materials. They can be easily inserted and removed when needed and do not interfere with regular breathing or speaking.

Night guards are similar to mouthguards, but they are worn while sleeping to prevent damage from a disorder called bruxism. This disorder causes individuals to unknowingly clench and grind their teeth while asleep. If left untreated, bruxism can result in teeth fractures, breakages, headaches, jaw pain, and symptoms caused by TMJ disorders.

  • What are the types of dental mouthguards?

    There are three types of mouthguards:

    1. Stock mouth protectors are ready to wear, inexpensive, and provide minimal protection.

    2. Boil and bite mouth protectors offer a better fit and are shaped around the teeth after being softened in hot water.

    3. Custom-fitted mouthguards are individually designed by dentists, providing the most protection and comfort.

  • How do night guards help teeth grinding?

    Normally, your teeth should only touch for about 5 minutes each day during chewing. Despite enamel being incredibly durable, excessive wear and chipping may occur, especially if teeth grinding is a habit, often happening subconsciously during sleep or stress. This can lead to noticeable damage, such as flattened teeth, thinned enamel, jaw soreness, and headaches. It can also strain muscles and damage jaw joints, potentially causing chronic pain and arthritis.

    If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, seeing a dentist early can prevent further damage. A night guard may help protect your teeth during sleep, and a dentist can offer strategies for managing daytime grinding. Addressing these issues promptly can save your teeth and jaw from significant problems in the future.

  • Why are mouthguards important in sports?

    Wearing a mouthguard during sports is important for several reasons. First, mouthguards help distribute force across all teeth, preventing individual teeth from bearing the full impact of a blow. They also protect against injuries to soft tissues and can prevent jaw and teeth fractures. Additionally, mouthguards may help prevent concussions by reducing the force between the upper and lower teeth and lessening the impact of the jaw on the skull.

  • How do I clean my mouthguard?

    1. Gently brush the mouthguard with toothpaste and a toothbrush.

    2. Gently brush the mouthguard with alcohol-free soap.

    3. Soak the mouthguard in diluted alcohol-free mouthwash.

    4. Soak the mouthguard in a mixture of vinegar and hydrogen peroxide.

    5. For a deeper clean, consider using an over-the-counter denture cleaner.
