Mouth Guards


Life can be tough on your smile and there is no end of things that can damage it. To prevent that damage, our dentists and the team at Spring Dental offer mouth guards in Quincy, Massachusetts. To have Dr. Gursimran Sidhu or Dr. Ansh Desai created one customised for your smile, call our office at 617-328-0790 to plan your visit.

At our office we offer two types of mouthguards: dental night guards and sports mouth guards. While they are similar, they each serve two different purposes.

Dental Night guards may be the answer to your problem if you suffer from bruxism. Bruxism refers to grinding or clenching your teeth, either subconsciously while awake or as you sleep. This problem has been known to go away on its own, especially in children, but if it does not, your teeth could be at risk for damage. Bruxism can also lead to headaches and neck, back and shoulder pain, and over time, it can affect the alignment of your smile. A night guard provides a barrier or cushion to stop your teeth from grinding against one another and prevent problems.

Sports mouth guards also protect your smile. They are designed to prevent damage to your teeth if you suffer a trauma to your mouth or head. Most people associate sports guards with football, lacrosse or boxing, but the fact is, you should wear a mouth guard for any activity that could put your smile at risk. If you have invisible braces for teeth, a sports mouth guard is a must to keep your dental work safe. Even if you already have a mouth guard for grinding teeth, it is a smart idea to have a new one made at the start of every sports season.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should you wear a mouth guard for grinding teeth?

A dental mouthguard helps protect your teeth from the damaging effects of teeth grinding or bruxism. It provides a cushioning barrier between your upper and lower teeth, reducing the risk of wear and fractures.

What are the available options for dental mouthguards?

Different types of mouthguards include custom-made dental night guard, boil-and-bite mouthguards, and stock mouthguards. Custom-made night guards offer the best fit and protection.

What is the process of making a custom sleep-right dental guard?

To make a custom dental night guard, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions create a personalized mouthguard that fits snugly and comfortably.

Can dental mouth guard cure bruxism?

While dental mouth guards cannot cure bruxism (teeth grinding) itself, they can alleviate the symptoms and protect your teeth from further damage. Treating the underlying cause of bruxism is essential for long-term relief.

How long do dental mouthguards last?

The lifespan of a dental mouthguard varies depending on the material used and the degree of grinding. Custom night guards can last between 1 and 3 years with proper care and maintenance.
