At York Lanes Dental Office, we offer custom-made mouth guards for sports and sleep, to protect your teeth and your oral health.
What is a Mouth Guard?
A mouth guard is a custom-made tray that fits over your teeth. It can be worn during sports and contact activities to protect your teeth from injury, or during sleep to protect them from the effects of grinding and clenching.
Mouth Guards for Sports
Your dentist can create a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth from injury during sports and other activities where there's a chance that your face will come into contact with another person or object.
If you get hit in the mouth, a mouth guard acts like a cushion that absorbs the impact more evenly. It provides a barrier between your teeth and gums, preventing injuries like chipped or broken teeth and cuts to the mouth.
Mouth Guards for Sleep
Your dentists can also create a custom night guard for you to protect your teeth while you sleep. Depending on the application, a night guard may be either a bite splint or a bite plane.
If you grind your teeth (bruxism), a night guard will act as a barrier to help protect your teeth from damaging each other while you sleep. If you suffer from TMJ disorder, a night guard can help prevent you from clenching your jaw and give you some pain relief.
