Dentist in Woodbridge, VA
Mouth guards help prevent trauma to your teeth during high-risk activities. Both professional and amateur athletes should wear mouth guards while participating in contact sports.
Certain mouth guards also protect patients from grinding their teeth in their sleep. These guards are often called “night guards”. This grinding habit is referred to as “bruxism” and can lead to headaches. It can be a result of TMJ temporomandibular joint disorder.
We can provide a custom fitting mouth guard or night guard to protect your smile. Often times, when a patient has had cosmetic dental procedures, Dr. Creamer will recommend a night guard to protect the restorative dentistry.
