Bite Guards

Bite guards may be recommended for patients who are experiencing headaches, sore, and stiff jaws that may be caused by teeth grinding or clenching. Night teeth grinding can lead to:

  • difficulty chewing
  • clicking or tenderness of the jaw joints
  • sore, stiff jaw muscles
  • earache or headache, particularly in the morning
  • difficulty opening and closing your mout
  • neck and shoulder pain

How do you treat teeth grinding?

Understanding the source of this pain is important for both you and your dentist.

Next, your dentist will help relieve your symptoms through a bite guard.

The muscles can be stretched and relaxed with certain exercises.Your dentist may recommend pain medication along with a bite guard to help relieve symptoms.

How do bite guards work?

A bite guard (also called a night guard) helps by propping open your bite and protecting your teeth from direct wear. Any grinding will wear down the appliance instead of your teeth.

Mouth Guards

Why would I or my child need a mouth guard?

We offer mouth guard services for patients as young as 5 years old. Since many sports require the use of a mouth guard to ensure the safety of children's teeth, we recommend that they have a good-fitting mouth guard.

How do we make mouth guards?

We make a mouth guard that is custom to your child's teeth. We will take an impression of your child's teeth and create a customized mouth guard to fit their mouth.
