Nightguards & Athletic Mouthguards
Many people clench and grind their teeth unknowingly in their sleep. The only way you, as a patient, may know that you suffer from this annoying habit too is if your spouse tells you they can hear you grinding your teeth at night or if you often wake up with sore head, neck, or face muscles. Although you may be unaware of your grinding habits, our team at Ryan Family Dental will be able to tell you if you're a grinder by looking for signs of teeth are excessively worn down or chipped.
Thankfully, we can help grinders from Allen, Lucas, Parker, Plano, and beyond with a custom-made nightguard! A nightguard is an appliance you wear at night to help protect your teeth from wear and chipping. This tool also helps relieve the symptoms of temporomandibular joint dysfunction, as well as pain that can come along with clenching and grinding. Additionally, we recommend wearing a nightguard if you have crowns or veneers in the anterior part of your mouth or implant crowns. The nightguard should protect your restorations from chipping if you grind your teeth at night.
If you or your child plays hockey, football, lacrosse, or another sport that involves any kind of contact, our team will be happy to create a custom-made mouthguard for your unique smile! With the help of a mouthguard, your beautiful teeth will be protected against injury.
For Allen, Lucas, Parker, Plano, McKinney, Fairview, and surrounding North Texas communities, Ryan Dental Group can provide a variety of oral appliances that are guaranteed to make your teeth happier and healthier. Interested in making an appointment? Contact us!
