Nightguards and Mouthguards
At Stone Oak Children’s Dentistry & Orthodontics, we understand that a healthy smile is a precious commodity. That’s why we offer custom nightguards and mouthguards as part of our preventative services. Nightguards are custom-fitted to your child’s teeth in order to protect them from grinding and clenching, which can damage tooth enamel and lead to headaches. Mouthguards, on the other hand, safeguard your child’s teeth from impact injuries during sporting activities. We believe that it’s better to be safe than sorry, and we look to protect your children’s smile in every way possible.
A night guard is a device that is worn over the teeth at night. It is made of hard plastic, and it covers the teeth on both the top and bottom jaw. The night guard protects the teeth from grinding against each other, which can damage the enamel and lead to tooth decay. Night guards are also used to treat TMJ disorders. The night guard acts as a buffer between the upper and lower teeth, which prevents the jaw from clenching. This can relieve pain and help to improve jaw mobility.
Custom mouthguards for sports are becoming increasingly popular as athletes look for ways to protect their teeth and jaws from injury. Unlike over-the-counter mouthguards, custom mouthguards are made to fit the specific contours of your teeth and gums, providing a snug and comfortable fit. They also offer better protection than over-the-counter mouthguards, as they are made from thicker and more durable materials. Custom mouthguards are expertly crafted by our Stone Oak dental professionals.
Benefits of Night Guards and Mouthguards
- Protect Your Teeth
Mouthguards and night guards are designed to protect your teeth from damage. Whether you’re playing a sport or grinding your teeth at night, a mouthguard can help to prevent tooth loss or other damage.
- Reduce Jaw Pain
Mouthguards and night guards can also help to reduce jaw pain. If you suffer from TMJ or bruxism, wearing a mouthguard can help to alleviate some of the pain and discomfort associated with these conditions.
- Save Money on Dental Bills
In addition to protecting your teeth, mouthguards and night guards can also save you money on dental bills. By preventing tooth damage, you’ll be less likely to need costly dental procedures in the future.
