Mouth Guards

Mouth Guards

Athletes of all levels wear protective mouth guards in order to prevent oral injury and damage to their teeth. They are worn over a person’s teeth, and they offer outstanding protection and comfort, without interfering with the wearer’s normal speaking or breathing. It has been shown time and time again that athletes who use mouth guards are less likely to experience concussions, tooth wear, oral injury and jaw problems. Axiom Dentistry provides custom-made mouth guards that are suitable for both children and adults.

Mouth guards are used in many contact sports and activities that present athletes with a high risk of oral injury and structural damage to their mouth. Wearing a protective mouth guard can substantially reduce these risks. Mouth guards have also been proven to reduce the chances of an athlete experiencing a concussion or lacerations to their tongue, cheeks and lips.

In addition to standard mouth guards, Axiom Dentistry also offers special night guards that are designed for use while a person is asleep. These night guards are extremely useful in treating bruxism, a condition in which an individual uncontrollably clenches and grinds their teeth while they are sleeping. If left untreated, bruxism can result in excessive tooth wear, jaw discomfort, headaches and tooth fractures. Wearing a night guard can greatly reduce these symptoms and even eliminate them entirely.

"I absolutely love this dental practice. The staff are all really friendly, helpful, and accommodating. It's easy to get in for an appointment as they have multiple providers. You can choose to see one particular dentist or choose to see whoever is available. I see whoever is available and everyone has been wonderful."
