The office of Washington Dental Care provides custom-made dental mouth guards for athletes and to provide protection from the effects of nighttime grinding. Our mouth guards are custom-made by taking impressions of your teeth and are manufactured using lightweight, high-quality material to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.
Children and adults who play contact sports or participate in other activities are at a higher risk of injuries to the teeth and jaw. A custom-made mouth guard can be worn while playing such sports to protect the teeth from damage and impact.
Bruxism is a condition where there is grinding and clenching of the teeth when a person is asleep. It is sometimes a result of sleep disorders, an incorrect or abnormal bite or because of missing or crooked teeth. But most of the time, bruxism is a result of stress and anxiety. The indications of bruxism are wearing out of the enamel, flattening of the tips of the teeth or indentations in the tongue. A custom-fitted mouth guard can prevent the teeth from rubbing together and protect wearers from tooth wear, jaw issues and headaches.
