Mouth guards can protect your teeth, jaw, and gums from dental injuries and issues whether you are an athlete or grind your teeth at night (bruxism). At Susquehanna Valley Dental, we offer a variety of mouthguards designed to fit your specific needs.
Our Middleburg dental clinic provides custom-made dental sports mouth guards to prevent or minimize dental trauma, such as chipped or broken teeth, cut lips or cheeks, and even jaw fractures.
While you can get a mouth guard or a night guard for teeth from a pharmacy or a sporting goods store, a custom-fit mouth guard offers much better protection. Custom-fit mouth guards are designed to provide the best fit and protection for the teeth, gums, and jaw. Our dentist makes these mouthguards after taking a 3D impression of your teeth.
One of the main advantages of custom-fit mouthguards is their superior fit and comfort compared to other types of mouthguards. Because they are custom-made, they fit securely and snugly around the teeth, which helps to prevent shifting or slipping during use. It ensures that the mouthguard stays in place, provides optimal protection for the teeth and jaw, and reduces the chance of an injury and a visit to emergency dentistry.
They are made from high-quality materials designed to withstand the rigors of regular use. It means they don’t need to be replaced as frequently as generic mouthguards, making them a more cost-effective option in the long run.
Night guards, also known as dental night guards or bite splints, are dental appliances you wear while sleeping to protect the teeth and jaw from the effects of bruxism, which is the chronic grinding or clenching of teeth during sleep.
Bruxism can cause many dental problems, including tooth damage, jaw pain, headaches, and TMJ disorders. Night guards create a barrier between the upper and lower teeth, which helps prevent tooth damage and reduce the pressure on the jaw joint.
