Mouth Guards

At NJ Laser Dentistry, we know how important it is to protect your whole familyโ€™s teeth during sports and other recreational activities. That is why we offer high-quality custom-made mouth guards for adults and children. We also offer night guards for patients who suffer from nighttime bruxism.

What are Mouth Guards?

Mouth guards are oral devices worn over your teeth to protect them during contact sports and physical activities. If you wear braces or have a fixed bridge or other restorations, our dentist recommends a mouth guard to protect your fragile dental work. Made from flexible and durable materials, mouth guards absorb the force from impacts to the face, contact with other players or hard falls. A mouth guard can also help reduce your chances of suffering serious injuries such as a broken jaw or concussion.

Do I Need a Mouth Guard?

According to the U.S. National Collegiate Athletic Associations, mouth guards are required athletic equipment for football, ice hockey, field hockey and lacrosse. Mouth guards are typically required for young children and student-athletes, and the American Dental Association recommends the use of a mouth for most contact sports and physical activities.

The ideal mouth guard is comfortable, durable and tear-resistant. Your mouth guard should also be properly fitted to prevent slipping and impeding your breathing or speech. That is why our dentist recommends a custom-made mouth guard from our office.

While there are other options available at sporting goods stores, ready-to-wear and mouth-formed guards do not offer the same protection as a custom-fitted mouth guard.

Based on impressions of your teeth, our mouth guards are made to your unique specifications for the optimal fit, comfort and performance. Schedule an appointment to speak to our professional dental staff and learn more about a custom-made mouth guard.

What are Night Guards?

For patients who suffer from nighttime bruxism, we can recommend a high-quality night guard. Nighttime bruxism is a condition that causes patients to clench or grind their teeth during sleep. This can cause a variety of painful problems, such as jaw pain, headaches, worn teeth and chipped or cracked teeth.

Our office offers night guards to wear overnight and reduce the effects of bruxism. If you suffer from nighttime bruxism, schedule an appointment to discuss the benefits of a night guard.
