Mouth guards and night guards are custom-made dental appliances that are designed to protect your teeth and gums from trauma and other negative conditions. Mouth guards are common amongst athletes and those with an active lifestyle. Dental injuries are common in sports with high levels of contact and intensity, such as wrestling, rugby, football, and basketball. There are many types of mouth guards available, including custom-made mouth guards that fit perfectly over your entire smile. Night guards are similar to mouth guards, but they are generally used to prevent damage to your teeth from nighttime grinding and to minimize snoring. Made from plastic, we strive to make night guards that are comfortable to wear as you sleep. Our caring dentist may recommend a night guard to protect your teeth from the excessive wear, damage, and pain caused by teeth grinding and clenching.
We will work together with you and your family to determine what type of night guard or mouth guard in Fairmont, North Carolina will work best for your individual lifestyle and dental needs. We are committed to doing everything within our power to protect your teeth and help you achieve overall oral health.
