Custom Night Guards
We believe protecting your teeth is one of the best investments you can make in your smile.
It’s estimated that close to 20% of adults suffer from the negative effects of grinding and clenching their teeth, often called bruxing. The main cause of bruxing is stress. Clenching and grinding not only causes excessive wear on your teeth, but it can also cause facial and neck muscle soreness, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) problems, arthritis pain and dysfunction.
The experienced dental team at Santavicca Dental Professionals can custom design a protective mouth guard to meet your unique circumstance. Often mouth guards are used to lessen the damaging effects of clenching or grinding your teeth. Mouth guards can also correct your bite by properly positioning the teeth.
Custom Guards for Snoring or Sleep Apnea
A snore guard is an oral appliance that is effective in treating snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Small and flexible, a snore guard resembles an athletic mouthpiece and has no moving parts, masks, hoses or batteries. Made from sterile thermoplastic, a snore guard can be easily cleaned with a regular toothbrush.
Feel free to contact the Santavicca Dental Professionals dental office if you have any questions about mouth guards or to schedule a smile consultation with one of our dentists.
