Protect Your Teeth With Mouthguards & Nightguards
Mouthguards and nightguards are essential oral appliances that can help protect your teeth from the long-term effects of grinding, clenching, and other forms of dental trauma. At Westmoreland Family Dentistry in Oviedo, we offer custom-fitted mouthguards and nightguards to ensure our patients get the highest level of protection for their teeth.
What are mouthguards and nightguards?
Mouthguards are designed to fit snugly over your teeth, protecting them from injury during physical activities and contact sports. Nightguards, however, are worn while you sleep and help prevent the long-term effects of grinding and clenching your teeth at night, also known as bruxism.
How are mouthguards and nightguards fitted?
Westmoreland Family Dentistry uses a highly accurate impression of your teeth to create custom-fitted mouthguards and nightguards. This ensures that the mouthguard or nightguard fits snugly, is comfortable to wear, and provides maximum protection for your teeth.
What are the benefits of wearing mouthguards and nightguards?
Wearing a mouthguard can help protect your teeth from trauma and long-term damage from sports injuries to the mouth and head. Nightguards can reduce TMJ disorder symptoms, a painful condition caused by grinding or clenching your jaw while you sleep. Both act as a barrier between the upper and lower jaws to cushion the teeth from trauma.
Who should consider a custom-fitted mouthguard or nightguard?
Anyone who plays contact sports such as football, soccer, rugby, boxing, and hockey can benefit from a sports mouthguard. Additionally, anyone who grinds or clenches their teeth at night should consider getting a nightguard. Children who play contact sports are especially vulnerable to dental trauma, so a custom-fitted mouthguard is an essential piece of sporting equipment.
