Mouth guards are an essential piece of equipment for the modern athlete. They are oral devices that can be worn over the teeth to protect yourself from oral injuries, facial lacerations and even concussions. We can also provide custom-made night guards for patients who clench and grind their teeth.
For athletes who play contact sports or activities where a blow to the face is possible, a mouth guard can be an essential piece of equipment for your oral health. Mouth guards are oral devices that are worn snugly over your teeth. At The Hampton’s Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we make our mouth guards with high-quality materials and a fit that is customized for you. While there are over-the-counter options for mouth guards, ours are designed for maximum protection and comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your teeth when you’re in competition. Mouth guards have been shown to protect against teeth fractures, facial lacerations and even concussions.
We also make nighttime mouth guards. Night guards are designed for patients who suffer from nocturnal bruxism, which is a sleeping condition that is characterized by the involuntary clenching and grinding of the teeth during sleep. A night guard is worn over the teeth just like a regular mouth guard. They are comfortable enough to wear through the night and will protect you from worn-down enamel, jaw pain and headaches.
