A night guard is a plastic device worn at night that fits over either your bottom or your top teeth. It helps protect your teeth from the damage caused by grinding or clenching. Nightguards are custom made to fit your teeth. First, we make an impression of your teeth. Then, models are made from the impressions, and a night guard is created.
A sports guard or an athletic mouthguard is a custom made, rubber-like covering that fits over your teeth and gums. It helps protect your teeth and gums by cushioning them and protecting them from damage.
