For our patients who struggle with clenching or grinding teeth at night, we offer custom night guards to protect their teeth, tongue, and cheeks. A night guard is used to ensure our patients don’t unintentionally chip or crack their teeth. If you notice facial pain or swelling, stiff jaw muscles, a dull headache, or tooth pain, you might be suffering from the effects of teeth grinding, also known as bruxism.
We also offer mouthguards for our patients who are athletes. Instead of the usual ‘boil-and-bite’ mouthguard available over the counter, our custom-made mouthguards are professional-grade, long-lasting, low-profile, and are the ultimate choice for superior comfort, fit, and protection. Mouthguards are used in sports primarily to prevent concussion and tooth breakage from impact.
Our mouthguards and night guards can last for up to a decade and are available in a variety of styles. When it comes to protecting your smile, whether while sleeping or at play, call Houston, TX dentist Dr. Macaluso today!
