Night Guards and Sports Guards

Who needs a mouthguard?

Mouthguards are important for anyone whose teeth would otherwise be exposed to damage. For example, they’re important for athletes to protect their teeth should they experience a blunt force to the mouth. But mouthguards aren’t just for people who play contact sports. 

Mountain biking, gymnastics, skateboarding, and a wide range of other activities expose your teeth to risk. Talk with the Acclaim Dental team about your hobbies and the activities in which you regularly engage so they can let you know if a mouthguard is right for you.

Mouthguards aren’t just for times when you’re active, either. In fact, they’re also important for some people when they’re in their most restful state. If you grind or clench your teeth while sleeping, you need a mouthguard to protect them against any damage. 

Acclaim Dental customizes both sports guards and night guards to their patients’ needs and unique teeth so they get the best, most comfortable fit. 

What’s a sports guard?

A sports guard is a mouthguard designed to protect your mouth during sports. All physical activity comes with the risk of injury. 

A sports guard ensures that injury doesn’t affect your teeth, leaving you with a chipped tooth or — worse yet — a missing one. What’s more, your sports guard protects the soft tissue of your mouth. 

Although sports guards are important, many people don’t use them because they think they’re clunky and uncomfortable. 

Acclaim Dental offers an alternative to those store-bought sports guards. They customize your sports guard to your mouth so it offers maximal protection while taking up minimal space. You get a fit so comfortable you’ll probably forget you’re wearing it as you play your sport. 

What’s a night guard?

A night guard, also called an occlusal guard, is a mouthguard you wear at night to protect your teeth if you grind or clench them in your sleep. 

Over time, even a small amount of pressure on your teeth each night can compromise them. This is especially true if you have a crown, bridge, veneer, or dental implant. 

To protect your smile, Acclaim Dental offers customized night guards. They’re comfortable enough to wear while you sleep but strong enough to safeguard your teeth.
