Dental Mouth Guards in
Fredericksburg, Virginia

Mouth guards are dental appliances worn over the teeth during contact sports and activities, or during sleep, to prevent oral injury. A custom dental mouth guard is an important appliance for both children and adults who participate in sports or have the problem of clenching and grinding their teeth while sleeping. Custom mouth guards offer a superior level of protection and comfort as compared to store-bought alternatives. Unlike standard, over-the-counter mouth guards, they are made by taking impressions of your teeth and are custom-made using high-quality, lightweight materials, so that they do not interfere with your normal speaking or breathing.

Dental Mouth Guards for Grinding Teeth

Wearing a mouth guard while playing contact sports protects the teeth and jaws from impact and prevents structural damage to your oral structures. Wearing a mouth guard also decreases the risk of concussions and lacerations to your tongue, cheeks and lips.

For those who suffer from bruxism (the habit of grinding one’s teeth while sleeping), wearing a mouth guard can prevent wear and tear on the teeth. Excessive grinding can lead to tooth sensitivity, jaw pain, headache and even tooth fractures in extreme cases. This can cause severe damage and the need for extensive treatments which can often be avoided by wearing a custom dental night guard when you are asleep.
