Oral appliance night guards and sports mouth guards are customized using digital or physical impression models of your teeth. These models are either made in-house or sent off to a dental lab where the appliance is made. Once your oral appliance is ready, you will return to Village Dental for a final fitting. Drs. Qadri will adjust the appliance to maximize its comfort and effectiveness.
Teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) occurs during sleep for some people. Habitual, long term bruxism can lead to serious damage to the teeth and jaw joints. A custom night guard repositions the jaw and keeps the teeth from grinding. Village Dental’s custom made guards are typically thinner and lighter in weight than those that are bought off-the-shelf making them more comfortable to wear.
Mouth guards should be used by anyone — children and adults — who play contact sports such as football and lacrosse. However, even those participating in non-contact sports (for example, gymnastics) and any recreational activity (for example, skateboarding, mountain biking) that might pose a risk of injury to the mouth would benefit from wearing a protective mouth guard.
