We always want to keep your smile safe and sound. For our patients who engage in sports and live more active lifestyles, accidents and trauma to your teeth and gums become more likely. Some of our patients also experience wear and tear from teeth grinding and clenching at night. To ensure your smile is always protected, our team may suggest a custom-made night guard or mouth guard in Bullard, Texas.
Mouth guards are made from plastic and other durable materials to cover the teeth and gums. We always suggest mouth guards for any sport or activity, but mouth guards are especially important for high-contact sports such as wrestling, football, rugby, soccer, and basketball. Night guards are also made from plastic and are designed to be comfortable enough to wear as you sleep. They are used to protect the teeth from nighttime teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism), acting as a barrier between the upper and lower teeth.
Night guards and mouth guards can play an important role in maintaining optimal oral health. If you or a family member is interested in having a night guard or mouth guard made, we invite you to contact our talented dentist, Dr. Allen, today. Our team at Bullard Family Dentistry is happy to schedule your appointment.
