The use of mouth guards for the smile

Home » Mouth Guards

Mouthguards play an important role in protecting the smile from damage. Dr. Shetty of Modern Dental Studio in East Brunswick, New Jersey, provides professional, customized mouth guards for patients who have to keep their teeth protected from conditions such as bruxism or high-impact sports. Protecting natural teeth and dental restorations is easy with a comfortable, custom-tailored mouth guard created at our practice. 

Also, there is a root cause for grinding or clenching, so if you want to find out more, we may dive deep and ask you to take the sleep test with your physician and get your airway scan right here in our office, which helps us diagnose.

What are the benefits of mouthguards for the smile?

 Mouth guards can be a great protector of the teeth, whether from high-impact sports activities or bruxism. Below are the best types of mouthguards available at Modern Dental Studio of East Brunswick, New Jersey:

  • Night guard for teeth. Patients who struggle with conditions such as bruxism that cause clenching and grinding of the teeth at night while they sleep will want to ask about a night guard. Using a mouth guard for grinding teeth can reduce the damage that can occur to the natural smile and dental restorations as a result of this issue
  • TMJ mouth guard. Patients diagnosed with TMJ/TMD may find that they have aching jaw joints. The mouth guard can reduce tension in the muscles around the temporomandibular joint
  • Sports mouth guards. Patients in high-impact sports such as hockey or soccer will want to wear a mouthguard when participating. This reduces the risk of extensive damage caused by impact to the face or mouth. Many situations where teeth have been knocked out or cracked could be eliminated with proper mouthguard use
