Our dental office provides several kinds of mouth guards and they are as follows:
1. Athletic Guards
This type of mouth guard is designed for anyone who enjoys contact sports like rugby, football, and lacrosse. Athletic guards protect your teeth from damage if you get injured or fall down during your game. We provide custom designed athletic guards which are comfortable to wear and are also less bulky.
2. Night Guards
If you tend to clench and grind your teeth at night, it can eventually cause damage to your teeth. We offer customized night guards which are comfortable to wear at night and will do an excellent job of protecting your teeth from your habits.
People with jaw and joint pains can also benefit from wearing a night guard. The same is true for those who have availed of expensive dental procedures like implants, crowns and bridges so they don’t get damaged from teeth grinding.
3. Snore Guards
Many people snore when they sleep and this is because of the vibration of the soft tissues at the back of the throat which relaxes during sleep. With a snore guard, your lower jaw will be pushed forward to open the airway thus preventing snoring and helping you sleep soundly at night.
If you need any of these mouthguards, please contact our office at (518) 793-6619.
