Our skilled dentist, Dr. Goel, provides both night guards and sports guards at our Santa Clara, California dental office. Night guards, which are sometimes referred to as bite guards, are used to prevent teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism). Bruxism can cause several severe consequences, including cracked and chipped teeth, migraines and tension headaches, jaw pain, tooth pain, and more. The night guard fits over your teeth and is worn at night to prevent teeth grinding and clenching during sleep. A night guard can effectively prevent bruxism and help relieve the pain associated with teeth grinding and clenching.
Sports guards are used to protect your teeth during sports and other athletic activities. Dental injury is common in sports, and we strive to help you protect your smile while allowing you to continue to enjoy your favorite activities. A sports guard is worn over the teeth during the sports activity and can help to prevent knocked-out teeth, chipped teeth, and more. Your sports guard will fit your smile comfortably so you can continue playing your best.
We invite you to contact us at Smiles for Life Dental Group to learn more about night guards and sports guards and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Goel. We look forward to caring for your smile!
