Dr. Philip Messer can fit you with a custom-made sports protection guard, night guard or snore guard to ensure the most comfortable fit possible. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation with one of our dental appliance specialists.

Sports Guards:

A sports mouth guard is a resilient plastic appliance that is worn to protect the teeth and gum tissues by absorbing the forces generated by traumatic blows during sports or other activities.

Night Guards:

It’s estimated that close to 20% of adults suffer from the negative effects of grinding and clenching their teeth, often called bruxing. The main cause of bruxing is stress. Clenching and grinding not only causes excessive wear on your teeth, but it can also cause facial and neck muscle soreness, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) problems, arthritis pain and dysfunction.

The experienced dental team at Dr. Philip Messer’s dental office can fit you with a night guard — a plastic mouthpiece that fits over your upper and lower teeth — to lessen the damaging effects of clenching or grinding your teeth. Night guards can also correct your bite by properly positioning the teeth.

Snore Guards:

A snore guard is an oral appliance that is effective in treating snoring and mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Small and flexible, a snore guard resembles an athletic mouthpiece and has no moving parts, masks, hoses or batteries. Made from sterile thermoplastic, a snore guard can be easily cleaned with a regular toothbrush.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about mouth guards or to schedule a smile consultation with Dr. Messer.
