At Danbury Dental Services, we are passionate about helping athletes of all ages protect their teeth so they can perform with confidence. That’s why we offer high-quality custom-made mouth guards for adults and children. For patients who suffer from nighttime bruxism (clenching or grinding the teeth during sleep), we offer night guards.
Mouth guards are an essential piece of athletic equipment for athletes at every level of competition. Made from durable and tear-resistant material, mouth guards are protective devices worn over the teeth to prevent trauma from sports-related injuries. The shock-absorbant material can reduce the effects of mouth injuries, including chipped teeth, broken teeth, knocked out teeth, or lacerations in the lips, tongue or cheeks. In some cases, a properly-fitted mouth guard can help prevent severe injuries such as broken jaws or concussions.
The American Dental Association recommends mouth guards for contact sports such as boxing, football, hockey, soccer and martial arts. Mouth guards are also recommended for non-contact sports such as baseball, gymnastics, skiing, and skateboarding. For children between the ages of seven and 11, mouth guards are required to participate in many organized sports.
An effective mouth guard should be comfortable and well-fitted as to not impede breathing or speech during use. While there are a variety of commercially available mouth guards, they are often bulky and uncomfortable. Store-bought mouth guards can also slip during due to their poor fit. To ensure superior comfort and fit, our dentists recommend a custom-made mouth guard.
Nighttime bruxism is a condition that causes patients to clench or grind their teeth during sleep. This can result in painful damage to the teeth and jaw muscles, causing headaches, worn or cracked teeth, and TMJ disorders. We offer custom-made night guards to protect your smile by reducing the contact between your teeth at night, reducing the effects of bruxism.
