Protect your Teeth and Jaw with a Custom-Fitted Mouthguard from Lightsview Dental
Injuries to your mouth and jaw can lead to permanent damage and costly dental repairs. If you or your children play a contact sport or participate in another high-risk physical activity, a mouthguard can protect your teeth from damage.
Sports injuries & Mouthguard?
Playing contact sports including rugby, soccer, and hockey, as well as participating in activities such as martial arts, skating, mountain biking, and rock climbing, increase your risk of experiencing trauma to your mouth and jaw. Getting hit from other players or equipment can cause chipped or broken teeth and lacerations to your cheeks, tongue, and gums.
While a mouthguard won’t make you indestructible, it does provide a cushioning effect to absorb the shock of the blow and distribute the pressure and vibrations across your mouth to reduce the risk of severe damage.
Bruxism & Nightguard
A night guard protects your teeth while you sleep by providing cushioning to prevent teeth grinding. People who clench or grind their teeth at night suffer from a condition known as bruxism. This may be caused by physical factors, such as jaw alignment issues or temporomandibular disorder (TMD), as well as psychological factors, including stress and anxiety.
If you suffer from bruxism or TMD, you may experience symptoms, including frequent headaches, facial pain, disrupted sleep, pain and tension in the jaw, and worn-down teeth. We can help you diagnose bruxism or temporomandibular dysfunction and determine if you need a nightguard.
At Lightsview Dental, we take accurate impressions of your upper and lower jaws to construct a custom mouthguard or night-guard from high-quality materials that is designed to fit perfectly around your teeth and gums for maximum comfort and efficacy.
If you play contact sports or experience symptoms of bruxism or TMD, contact our experienced dentist at Lightsview Dental now to schedule your fitting for a custom mouthguard or nightguard.
