At Fraser Valley Dental Specialists in Abbotsford, we provide mouth guards to protect our patients' smiles from injury and physical harm.
A sports mouth guard covers your teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to your mouth, teeth, gums, lips, and face while playing sports.
A properly-fitted customized sports mouth guard can cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth.
When the upper and lower teeth slam together, the force of the impact is transmitted to the brain, and this can cause a concussion. A custom mouth guard provides a protective surface to disperse the impact.
If you clench or grind your teeth during sleep, a night guard can help prevent damage to your teeth that could otherwise develop over time.
Our team creates highly personalized night guards by adjusting their thickness depending on the patient's level of teeth grinding and clenching. They are designed to fit your mouth perfectly, with no adjustments needed.
Night mouth guards can also help prevent the development of temporomandibular joint disorders, as they help take the strain off your jaw that can be caused by grinding or clenching.
