Night Guards and Custom Mouthguards
Your teeth make up the strongest substance in your body. However, they are not invincible. While we do our best to prevent tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems, you may have to take additional measures to protect your smile from injury. Dental damage commonly occurs from a mouth trauma during sports or from nighttime teeth grinding. As part of our dental care services at Allen Dentistry, we proudly provide custom mouthguards to prevent irreversible damage to your teeth. Your athletic mouthguard or night guard will be fabricated using durable, high quality materials, and it will be custom fit for optimal comfort.
We Can Protect Your Smile
At Allen Dentistry, we take pride in the fact that we can protect the smiles of every member of your family. We provide a warm, welcoming environment and we utilize the latest technology in modern dentistry. Countless patients suffer from teeth grinding each year. For many, it is a subconscious habit that only their partner is aware of. Unfortunately, habitual teeth grinding can wreak havoc on your teeth, causing early wear to the enamel of your teeth. It is also a culprit to morning headaches and jaw problems if left untreated. A simple night guard can be an invaluable investment that can save your smile and restore the quality of your sleep.
Do you have a child in sports? The American Dental Association estimates that over 2 million teeth are knocked out each year from sports related injuries. A mouthguard can not only prevent teeth from being chipped, broken or knocked out, but they also have the ability to reduce the risk of concussion from lower jaw impact. While you can certainly buy a “boil-and-bite” mouthguard at the local sporting goods store, a custom mouthguard from your dentist provides significant benefits. A custom mouthguard allows you to breathe and speak naturally, which greatly increases the chances of your child keeping it in his or her mouth while playing sports. Our athletic mouthguards are also made to last longer than over-the-counter options, and they only require a brief appointment so that we can take an impression.
