What’s the difference between a nightguard and mouthguard?
A nightguard and mouthguard are oral devices used to protect teeth. While both protect teeth, a nightguard prevents teeth grinding and clenching, and a mouthguard prevents sports injuries to the mouth. If you commonly wake up with jaw pain or have experienced tooth sensitivity, a custom nightguard can help protect your teeth. If you play a sport, our athletic mouthguards can cover the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, lips, and gums.
Do nightguards help with TMJ?
Patients looking for jaw pain relief or ways to prevent teeth grinding and clenching often ask us about nightguards. A nightguard can relieve some of the pressure put on your jaw and teeth and prevent teeth grinding and clenching as well as tooth enamel decay. If you notice signs of TMJ, like jaw pain and teeth grinding or clenching, we encourage you to ask us about TMJ therapy options like custom nightguards.
Is a custom mouthguard better than a store-bought?
A custom mouthguard is the best type of mouthguard as it is custom-made for you. Our custom mouthguards in Alvin are created with our modern technology to specifically fit the structure of your teeth and mouth. The result of a custom mouthguard over a store-bought is a comfortable fit and the best protection. If you or your child are in a sport or teeth grind, investing in one of our custom mouthguards will last longer than one that is store-bought.Contact Us
