Custom-fit mouthguards or oral appliances are designed to protect the teeth, gums, and mouth from teeth grinding and related tooth damage. Your smile is an investment, so it is important to take preventive measures to keep it protected if you have symptoms of TMJ or signs of bruxism.

Our dental care team will provide a thorough dental exam to look for the common signs of bruxism such as worn or flat teeth, damaged teeth, and changes in the gums. If you are concerned that you may need a nightguard to protect your teeth, visit our McLeansville, NC dentist office for a dental exam and fitting for a custom nightguard.

Why Do I Need A Nightguard for My Teeth?

Patients who grind their teeth during sleep or clench their jaw can often experience related dental problems without a nightguard. Customized to fit like a sports mouthguard, a nightguard prevents the jaw from being able to fully clench and the teeth from making contact. This can prevent chipped and cracked teeth, the development of gum disease, and even the loosening of teeth over time. A custom nightguard can provide:

  • Ultimate Comfort: A custom mouthguard is tailored to fit every groove and surface in the mouth.
  • Enhances Oxygen Flow: Custom mouthguards have a snug fit over the teeth and can allow people to breathe more easily when relaxed.
  • Reduce Jaw Clenching: A custom mouthguard prevents the surfaces of the teeth from coming together, facilitating a more relaxed jaw position, which can reduce muscle tension.
