Mouth Guards and Night Guards
A mouth guard is a device which is usually worn by athletes that helps prevent damage to their teeth. Our dentist can make a custom-made mouth guard for any patient who is a candidate.
A night guard is a device which can be custom made in our dental office. It is a two-visit procedure. On your first visit, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth to fabricate a custom-made night guard.
