Bite Guard (Night Guard)
Grinding your teeth (bruxism) or clenching your jaw, can happen while you sleep or even during the day. If you grind your teeth on a regular basis, this can be damaging to your smile and your overall oral health. Although the cause varies from stress to developing this as a habit, the symptoms may include headaches, sore jaw, loosened and painful teeth, or even fractured teeth. Prolonged grinding can reduce tooth enamel and cause sensitivity due to exposed dentine.
Our dentist can fit you with a custom made night guard that acts as a cushion between your teeth, keeping them apart and preventing the friction caused by teeth grinding. Our dentist will custom-fit your night guard using impressions of your teeth and molding the guard to your mouth. Made of custom material, the guard will fit over your top teeth, and cushions your molars to absorb and prevent grinding. Your symptoms may improve by wearing a night guard and your smile will be protected.
When taking part in any sporting activity where there is a strong chance of contact with other participants or hard surfaces it is vital to protect your teeth from harm.
A mouthguard covers the upper teeth with the aim of cushioning a blow to the face. It can minimise the risk of damaged or broken teeth and injuries to the lips, tongue, cheeks or jaw.
Wearing a mouthguard can help give you the confidence you need to perform to your full potential, safe in the knowledge that your teeth are well protected.
A custom-made mouthguard from your dentist can offer the best protection for your smile. The rubber-like cover fits exactly over the teeth and gums making it comfortable and helping it to stay in place.
