Each year, hundreds of thousands of dental patients are prescribed bite guards to aid in a variety of dental and oral problems. Bite Guards are mostly worn during the night, and are able to aid in a variety of problems, such as Nocturnal Bruxism (teeth grinding), teeth clenching, or chronic jaw soreness. Our Bite Guards can even aid in TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) symptoms and Neuromuscular problems.
Customized bite guards are created within our office using a unique mold of your teeth. We use a wide range of materials from dental plasters to thermoplastics to create a mold that is specific to your smile. This ensures the perfect fit for you, and only you. Our bite guards are individually tailored to fit each of our patients, and we have helped ease chronic jaw, neck and tooth pains for countless patients.
Although our bite guards may look similar to the typical athletic mouthguard, the technology and materials used are vastly different. Athletic mouth guards are often large, uncomfortable and cumbersome to use during sleep. Bella’s customized dental bite guards are sleek, comfortable and form-fitting. Each of our bite guards are also custom created in our dental facility to specifically match your teeth. We use the latest in dental plaster and molding technology to quickly create long lasting bite guards which fit like a glove inside your mouth.
Bella Dental’s Bite Guards are also perfect for TMJ sufferers. TMJ stands for the Temporomandibular Joint, which means that the jaw joint pops when opening and closing. Chronic TMJ sufferers may experience facial pain, headaches, earaches, ear ringing, jaw popping and clicking, muscle stiffness in the neck and face and a misaligned jawbone. If you experience any of these symptoms, you may be a candidate for our custom Bite Guards.
So if you think you may suffer from tooth grinding, clenching or TMJ, contact Bella Dental today to learn more about how you can obtain a custom Bite guard for your specific bite. Our friendly staff will be happy to schedule you with an oral evaluation and appointment.
