Protecting Your Teeth with Nightguards and Sports Mouthguards
Do you grind your teeth at night? Are you involved with sporting or exercise activities that could potentially cause a traumatic impact to your mouth? If so, customized nightguards or sports mouthguards from Dr. Harold A. Pollack can be essential to protecting the health of your teeth and gums.
Teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism) can cause the gradual wearing down of your tooth enamel and lead to a number of cosmetic and functional problems with your teeth. A custom nightguard placed over the upper and lower teeth can save your natural teeth as well as any existing dental restorations from the negative effects of bruxism. Beautiful Smiles offers advanced Comfort H/S Bite Splint™ nightguards that are vacuum-formed for the most accurate and comfortable fit possible. We also offer acrylic nightguards for individuals who suffer from less severe forms of bruxism. Our nightguards are composed of state-of-the-art technology and are uniquely designed for each patient to ensure a precise fit and easy insertion and removal.
For active patients who need to protect their mouths from potential oral injury, Dr. Pollack offers PlaySafe® mouthguards that come in a variety of protection levels depending on your needs. These mouthguards are much different than a “boil-and-bite” mouthguard. PlaySafe® mouthguards are customized for an accurate and comfortable fit. They also come in a variety of colors and designs so that you can add your team name or other personal touches!
