Mouthguards & Nightguards
Do you play sports or live a very active lifestyle? You should consider a custom-crafted mouthguard to protect your smile while you play, exercise or perform other activities that could threaten your teeth. Many sports organizations require a mouthguard to play. Dr. Bob can create a variety of special mouthguards for various needs, including customized mouthguards for our patients with braces. A mouth injury is always painful and can cause damage, but braces wearers are especially vulnerable to this type of painful injury.
Mouthguards and Nightguards
Do you suffer from a sore jaw or headaches when you wake up in the morning?
Do your teeth appear worn or flat? If so, you may be experiencing bruxism– the unconscious grinding of your teeth while you sleep. Bruxism is a common problem that can cause tooth sensitivity, cracked teeth and sometime chronic facial pain if it remains untreated. Dr. Bob can fashion a customized removable nightguard worn during sleep that protects the teeth from grinding overnight.
