Nightguards & Sportsguards
Dentist in San Mateo, CA
Nightguards can treat various symptoms of TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorder. This includes headaches, sore jaws, worn enamel, insomnia, and loose teeth. Teeth grinding can occur during sleep, causing discomfort and teeth damage.
A night guard is custom-made to fit on an individual patient’s teeth and alleviate symptoms that can cause jaw pain.
Sports guards are provided for athletes and provide protection for teeth from damage due to physical facial contact or accidents. They can be created to cover the entire jaw, including the gum tissue to ensure full protection.
