Occlusal Guard

Custom designed mouth guards and occlusal / night guards are made of flexible plastic and molded to fit the shape of your teeth. Mouth guards are recommended to protect the jaw and teeth during physical activity and sports such as boxing, football, basketball, or other activities where your mouth may get hit. In addition, these guards protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining.

Occlusal / night guards are recommended for patients who clench or grind their teeth at night or during the day as a way to protect their teeth and bite. This removable appliance is also important in relieving joint pain and muscle tenderness associated with TMD (Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorder).

If you have decided a guard is right for you, an impression will be made of your teeth and the professional custom fit guard will be made in our office the same day. The lifetime of the mouth or occlusal guard depends the usage by the patient.
