Services Details

Nightguards & Mouthguards

It is estimated that one third of adults suffer from bruxism, more commonly known as sleep teeth grinding. Symptoms include sore and painful jaw, chronic facial pain, headaches and earaches. Bruxism has a variety of different physical and psychological causes. Many patients aren’t even aware that they grind! A nightguard is the simplest way to help protect your teeth, mean a better sleep, not to mention a saving in future dental bills!

Nightguards are trays that are custom-fit your upper or lower teeth in the jaw area ideally. They are put around the teeth to keep them from grinding, clenching, and other physical injuries or trauma. While there are over-the-counter nightguards available, we highly recommend custom nightguards. Custom nightguards are created from an exact model of your mouth that we make by taking a mold of your teeth. Accidents can happen when participating in any athletic activity. Injuries that could occur include chipped or broken teeth, broken crowns, and fractured jaws. For this reason, any athlete- adults and children alike- should be fitted for a mouthguard. There are many different options of mouthguards available at your local sports store. However, the safest and most effective option is a custom mouthguard. We will make an impression of your teeth to create your custom mouthguard. This allows the mouthguard to cover all your teeth and stay firmly in place for maximum protection.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! If you suspect that you may be clenching in your sleep, let us know and we can check you for signs and symptoms. Even if you don’t have discomfort or pain, our professional team may be able to tell that you clench based on the condition of your mouth. If you, or someone in your family is involved in a contact sport and don’t have a mouth guard, contact us for a consultation.

Yes, it is ideal for those who experience teeth clenching and grinding while they sleep to wear a mouthguard. It helps keep the upper and lower teeth away from each other so that there is no excess pressure that may damage your teeth.
Numerous studies since the 1980s have proven that wearing a Mouthguard compared to wearing none significantly decreases the risk of getting fractured teeth from an impact. Based on the ADA, athletes are 60 times more vulnerable to teeth damage if they do not wear mouthguards.
Upper nightguards are often suggested since they are not as easily removed as lower teeth nightguards. Although, dentists may suggest lower guards as well since they are easier to wear and get comfortable with. Regardless, the nightguard you will need is the one that can protect your teeth without affecting your natural bite.
Bruxism or teeth grinding and jaw clenching is commonly associated with stress and anxiety. Although Bruxism does not always have symptoms, it may still give some people facial pain, headaches, and weakened teeth. Often the people with this condition do not realize they are grinding their teeth or clenching their jaw.
Yes, it is alright to drink water while wearing your mouthguard. Make sure to floss and brush your teeth before wearing them to ensure no food and bacteria will be stuck to risk tooth decay and mouthguard stains.
Make sure to store your nightguard carefully. When not worn, put it in the provided container filled with cold tap water. It protects your nightguard from any bacterial growth. Keep it stored in a place away from the reach of children and pets as well.
It is advised to wash your nightguards at least once a month. You can clean it with non-abrasive denture cleaners, which you can find over-the-counter. Put your nightguard in a container with water, and the cleaner dissolved into it.
Initially, you might feel dental implants are expensive. However, they represent a more permanent and natural solution than dentures and partials. Thus, there is a greater initial investment. They should last for years, particularly if you have an “ideal” case. Independent surveys of implant patients show that they felt the investment was worth every penny and would do it again!
Usually two visits, 1st to take molds of your teeth and a custom measurement of your corrected bite. The 2nd to deliver and fine tune the guard to your mouth.
Our team will take impressions of your teeth to make a nightguard/mouthguard that is the exact fit to your teeth. While getting it from your dentist will likely cost much more than what you can get from local drug/sport store, it can be an extremely worthwhile investment in the long run.

Wonderful dental team. Passionate about their work. They went above and beyond to make the dental implants or teeth implants possible for me. Dr. William Liang is excellent! The assistant was so patient and compassionate too and they work so well together. We have been bragging so much about how awesome our experience was that my other 2 daughters and my sisters are coming with me to Surrey for my follow-up so they can meet everyone! I’m very very grateful and without a doubt made the right choice to have my dental implants or teeth implants done here. You will never know how much this has meant to me!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
