Mouth guards are another option that is more specific for protecting your teeth from clenching or grinding while you are sleeping. They can also be used to prevent snoring and alleviate symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. There are many options for materials to choose from to make sure the mouth guard is made to feel and fit comfortably for you. Not sure if you clench or grind your teeth at night?

Sports guards are great for anyone who participates in high contact sports. The guard will not only help protect your teeth from sports related trauma, but it can be custom made to help reposition the jaw allowing the muscles and brain to be in a more relaxed state. Additionally, it helps open your airway, giving your body more oxygen and simultaneously reducing lactate levels to improve performance.
