At Pax Dental, we make in house Custom Night Guards and Athletic Guards to protect your teeth.
Many people subconsciously grind their teeth in times of stress or during sleep. When coming together, the strong force of the teeth and jaw can cause grinding and microfractures, resulting in prematurely worn teeth.
Our doctors at Pax offer mouthguards (also called night guards) to protect teeth from becoming prematurely worn or damaged. For nighttime use only, these professional mouthguards can prevent painful jaw, tooth damage and even TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) issues.
Play a sport that needs protection from a mouth injury? We customize these guards to fit your mouth, jawline and for it to sit securely on your teeth. This protects your teeth from being hit and causing major damage to your mouth.
Why a professional mouthguard?
We use several varieties of high quality mouthguards, depending on the needs of the patient. Every mouthguard is custom-fitted for your mouth, to offer the best comfort. Using store-bought boil-and-bite mouthguards can result in a bulky fit, and inferior materials that could cause bite problems.
The right quality mouthguard will not only protect your teeth, but your peace of mind.
How long do they last?
Because over-the-counter mouthguards are made from a pliable plastic, constant chewing, teeth clenching, and grinding wears down the plastic much quicker than the strong material used to make custom-fit mouthguards.
What is a custom guard?
Custom-fit mouthguards are prescribed and created by a dental professional from thermoplastic material and are based on a detailed mould taken of your mouth and teeth.
How well do they work?
Because custom mouth guards are so precisely made, they are able to provide you with optimal safety and comfort. This is something that over-the-counter mouthguards cannot ever achieve.
