Night Guards and Mouth Guards

What are Night Guards?

Night Guards are custom made appliances that we create for you here at Beacon Hill Dental Centre to reduce the stress on teeth and relieve the muscles of chewing while you sleep. We design night guards to serve two main purposes, one to protect natural and restored teeth from wearing or breaking down and two as habit breaking or training appliances. The damaging habits that need to be broken in this case is clenching and grinding also known as br. If you wake up in the morning with a headache, facial muscle ache or migraines you might be clenching and/or grinding your teeth. In the long run this can damage your teeth and more importantly cause strain and damage to your Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) causing a condition known as TMD. Call us to find out more about night guards we make here at BHDC.

What are Mouth Guards or Sports Guards?

Mouth Guards also known as sports guards are appliances that are worn when playing contact sports. They help protect teeth, tongue, jaws and the temporomandibular joint at the instant of an impact. They have also been known to reduce concussions by absorbing the impact of an unexpected hit and increase performance by reducing the levels of cortisol secreted by the body when competing in sports activities. Sure there are the boil and chew mouth guards and they work to some extent, but, the night guards that we design and create for you here at Beacon Hill Dental Centre are custom made for you, so they fit you perfectly and provide you with all the protection needed when participating in contact sports.
