Custom Mouthguards and Nightguards

Teeth are tough, but even they need extra protection sometimes. Watch any hockey game (or post-game interview) and you’ll see how common mouth injuries are among athletes. And it isn’t just the pros who are at risk.    

At Metropolitan Dental, we protect the investment you’ve made in your smile by creating comfortable, custom mouthguards that can take a hit when you’re playing sports. And, because they’re moulded on-site to fit your exact bite, having one in your mouth won’t throw you off your game.

Custom mouthguards should be worn by kids and adults alike in any sporting activity where a blow to the mouth is a possibility. After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Custom nightguards are a different appliance altogether. These are used to help patients who are either clenching or grinding their teeth. This is a very common problem that can cause excessive wear to your teeth, damage your gums, cause gum recession, create sensitive teeth to temperature, create pain in the muscles of your face, neck, or jaws and contribute to headaches and migraines. So many problems just from bringing out teeth together with too much pressure! But not to worry..we have the right solution for you

Not all tooth-grinding issues are the same, and we want to be sure and give you the appliance that’s right for you. That’s why we take your long-term overall and dental health into account in correcting problems such as this. We will also evaluate the success of the appliance to completely take care of your pain. If you are finding that some problems still exist, then additional treatment with the simple use of Botox may be the answer for you. Make sure to check out the link for this treatment option. It may be just what the doctor ordered.
