We Provide Mouthguards in New Jersey

The American Dental Association (ADA) offers recommendations about the use of mouthguards around the country. According to the ADA, everyone who engages in full-contact sporting events should wear a mouthguard.

Mouthguards protect your teeth and your gums while you play. These dental guards offer additional protection if you wear braces. Impacts during a sporting event often damage braces or cause injuries as the braces are pressed into soft tissue.

Types of Mouthguards Available to You

You get to select the kind of mouthguard that works best for you here in New Jersey. Generally, you will choose between:

Pre-Made Mouthguards

Pre-made mouthguards cost the least. However, these mouthguards are not fitted to your mouth. Many people find pre-made mouthguards uncomfortable to wear, especially for lengthy periods.

Boil-and-Bite Mouthguards

Boil-and-bite mouthguards allow you greater customization of your mouthguard. You heat these mouthguards, generally by boiling them, and then hold them between your teeth before they cool. The process allows them to mold to your teeth.

Custom-Made Mouthguards

Dentists provide custom mouthguards in New Jersey. These mouth guards fit your mouth and provide increased levels of comfort. Regardless of the kind of mouthguard you pick, make sure your mouthguard:

  • Does not obstruct your breathing
  • Is tear-resistant
  • Is easy for you to clean

Keep these factors in mind while selecting a night and day dental guard in New Jersey.

Our team also provides nightguards for patients throughout New Jersey. Nightguards prevent you from grinding your teeth while you sleep. They also help reduce the discomfort and issues associated with TMJ disorder.

Dentists create custom nightguards for patients who have bruxism, or grind their teeth, especially when sleeping. These guards are placed over either your top or bottom teeth, preventing nighttime grinding.

Signs of Tooth Grinding in New Jersey

How do you know if you are grinding your teeth while you sleep? Bruxism comes with several common symptoms that indicate when you should contact a dentist for professional help. Common symptoms of bruxism include:

  • Difficulties sleeping
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity in the teeth
  • Pain in the jaw, face, neck, and shoulder
  • Tooth fractures or chips
  • Loosened or worn-down teeth

Consider scheduling an appointment with Kids & Family Dentistry if you face any of the above symptoms. Allow us to discuss your options for getting a night and day dental guard in New Jersey to address these issues.

Address TMJ Symptoms with a Dental Guard

TMJ disorder causes discomfort for individuals who try to chew or open their mouths. There are several causes of TMJ disorder, including:

  • Jaw injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle tension
  • Misaligned teeth

A mouthguard often helps mitigate the symptoms associated with TMJ here in New Jersey. Generally, dentists recommend that you wear these mouthguards at night. However, in some cases, wearing a mouth guard during the day acts as a way to relax muscles, leading to reduced discomfort and pain.

Our team works to design customized mouthguards for patients with bruxism or TMJ disorder. We use soft material in the construction of mouthguards to protect your teeth, which reduces the amount of force that goes on your jaw muscles while stopping your teeth from grinding.
