So, we make a lot of night guards for our patients, but it has to be the right indication. We don't normally make a night guard for a clencher. We make a night guard for somebody that grinds their teeth, or bruxism, and those patients, you can see on their teeth what they're doing, how they're wearing their teeth away and those patients definitely need a night guard. You'll also see it on the night guard, when they come in for their clean appointments, because we'll clean their night guards each clean appointment. And, you'll see the marks that they've ground through the night guard and some patients even break them. So, it's pretty severe and we treat that here, yes.

Keep Your Pearly Whites Intact With a Professionally Made Mouthguard
No one wants dental damage. Unfortunately, it can be a fact of life if you don’t take steps to protect your teeth. According to the American Dental Association, athletes not wearing a mouthguard are 60 times more likely to suffer teeth damage than those wearing mouth protection!
Bruxism (teeth grinding) is another major cause of teeth damage. Did you know you can grind your teeth while you sleep and not be aware of it? That’s why it’s important to keep up with regular checkups – so we can check for signs of teeth enamel damage and recommend treatment as necessary.
Our custom mouthguards will provide protection against both kinds of teeth damage. When you come in for your consultation and exam, we’ll take impressions of your teeth so that we can have a professionally crafted mouthguard made just for you. In some cases, we can even make them right here in our office.
It will fit better and provide better protection than “boil-and-bite” products you can find in the store. And since our custom-made mouthguards offer superior protection and performance, you can enjoy peace of mind that your or your child’s teeth are getting the best protection possible.
