Night Guards - Bite Guards
Why A Professional Mouthguard?
We use quality night guards, depending on the needs of the patient. Each mouthguard is custom-fitted to your mouth structure, to offer the best comfort. Using store-bought boil-and-bite mouthguards can result in an uncomfortable fit and inferior materials that could cause bite problems. The right quality night guard will not only protect your teeth, but provide you with a peace of mind. Do you or your children ever wake up with jaw pain or think you might be grinding your teeth? Schedule a consultation with us to discuss getting a custom-fit night guard. In just one visit, we can evaluate your grinding habits and take an impression of your smile.
