What Is a Nightguard?

A solution for those who grind or snore when they sleep.

A nightguard is a dental device that helps prevent teeth grinding and clenching at night. It’s designed to fit over your top teeth and prevents wear and tear on the teeth and muscles of the head, face, and jaw.

Nightguards position the jaw to reduce stress on the muscles of the face and neck. They also protect the enamel surface of the teeth from teeth clenching and grinding.

Treating TMJ

Nightguards could help.

After a TMD and TMJ assessment, our NW Calgary dentist may recommend a custom nightguard to treat your jaw problem.

You may be a candidate for a nightguard if you answer yes to any of the following questions:

  • Do you grind or clench your teeth during the day or night?
  • Do you have stiff muscles around your jaws?
  • Do you suffer from frequent headaches and pain in your neck?
  • Do you hear a “clicking” or “popping” noise when you open your mouth?
  • Is it difficult and/or painful to open your mouth wide for eating or yawning?
  • Have you ever suffered an injury to your neck, head, or jaw?
  • Have you noticed your teeth no longer touch when you bite together?
  • Do you have arthritis in other joints throughout your body?
  • Do you have a family history of arthritis?

Learn more by scheduling a complete TMD and TMJ assessment at 16th Avenue Dental in Calgary, AB.

Sports Mouthguards

Protect your smile!

Protect your teeth from dental injury with a sports mouthguard designed to fit over your top teeth. This helps redistribute the force of impact and provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue in and around your mouth.

Our dentist in NW Calgary recommends custom-made sports mouthguards because of their superior fit compared to over-the-counter ones. Mouthguards from the dentist’s office are also much thinner and more comfortable to wear, which means you or your child will wear them more often. Unfortunately, generic store mouthguards are often bulky and very uncomfortable to wear.

Avoid Injury

Feel confident and perform at your best.

Children playing Football

Did you know that approximately 39% of all dental injuries occur while playing sports, and of those, 75% of sports-related dental injuries affect at least one of the most visible teeth?

Many studies show that mouthguards help prevent chipped or broken teeth and protect against cuts to lips, gums, and other soft tissue in the mouth area. If you’re considering a mouthguard from the store vs. a custom-fit option, we recommend scheduling an appointment with your local dentist in NW Calgary, AB to learn more.
