MOUTH GUARDS/SNORING APPLIANCES
Sports Mouth Guards - Anyone enjoying contact sports such as football, rugby, basketball or lacrosse needs to protect their teeth using a sports mouth guard. Our Custom designed sports guards available in our Nashville office are more comfortable, less bulky, non-chafing and provide better cushioning so they’re more likely to be worn.
Night Mouth Guards protect from clenching and grinding while sleeping. A night mouth guard designed by your Nashville dentist will be comfortable and do a great job of protecting your teeth.
Some people find a standard night mouth guard uncomfortable in which case your Nashville dentist can design a slimmer, Invisalign night guard. These guards are almost invisible and can double as daytime protection from discomfort caused by clenching or grinding of the teeth.
Other situations where a night mouth guard is beneficial.
Wearing a night guard may also relieve jaw and joint pain for those patients experiencing discomfort associated with their TMJ or from teeth grinding. A night mouth guard will also protect expensive dental work such as crowns, implants, and bridges from the damage caused by grinding. Simply put, your teeth will last a lifetime with the proper care and attention, and your Nashville night, sports, and snore mouth guard dentist is there to help you protect your health, teeth and your cosmetic investment.
Night mouth guards can also protect orthodontic patients from shifting or drifting of the teeth.
Snore Mouth Guards
While sleeping the soft tissues at the back of the throat vibrate due to the jaw relaxing back during sleep. One of our snore mouth guard from our Nashville location repositions the lower jaw forward, opening the airway for more efficient air passage and reducing snoring for a more restfull sleep.
