At Artistry Dental, we strive to help you keep your smile healthy and beautiful. One way we work toward this goal is by providing custom-made mouth guards and night guards. A mouth guard is an oral appliance that fits over your teeth to protect them and the surrounding structures, including the gums. We most often recommend mouth guards for our patients who participate in sports and other athletic activities. High-contact sports, such as hockey, football, basketball, boxing, and soccer, frequently result in dental injury. The mouth guard fits over your teeth to lower your risk for injuring your smile. Wearing a mouth guard can prevent dental injuries such as chipped or cracked teeth, knocked-out teeth, and damage to the gums, cheeks, and tongue.
Dr. Francisco Kim also provides night guards for teeth grinding in Anaheim, California. A night guard is a special type of mouth guard that is designed to only be worn at night. You may need a night guard if you suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching. The night guard fits over your teeth to prevent them from clenching and grinding together as you sleep.
If you believe a mouth guard or night guard may be beneficial for your smile, please contact our friendly dentist and dental team today by contacting our office. We look forward to helping you keep your smile healthy!
