Protect Your Smile With Mouthguards in D’Iberville

Everyone wants to keep their smile healthy and looking great. However, you can put your smile in jeopardy without even realizing it. The American Dental Association says that athletes who don’t use mouth protection are 60 times more likely to suffer a dental injury than those who do. Also, if you grind your teeth in your sleep, you can damage your tooth enamel. The good news is, you can get D’Iberville mouthguards that:

  • Keep your teeth and mouth safe while playing sports
  • Prevent teeth grinding while sleeping
  • Help you avoid extensive dental work
  • Reduce your chances of having a dental emergency

Make sure your smile stays in one piece! Call Back Bay Family Dentistry today at 228-220-2117 for a custom mouthguard. Besides D’Iberville, we serve patients from Biloxi, Gulfport, St. Martin, and Ocean Springs.

Enjoy Superior Protection With a Professional Mouthguard

You only have one smile, so you need to take good care of it. It’s possible to repair many types of tooth damage using restorative dentistry. But it’s best to take steps to avoid added dental work – and the expense that goes along with it. We offer two types of custom mouthguards:

  • Athletic Mouthguards – If you play any kind of sport where you might collide with another player or that involves any flying objects, you should wear a professional mouthguard. We make our sports mouthguards in-house. So you’re assured of the best quality. They fit better, provide more protection, and last longer than a “boil-and-bite” mouthguard from a store.
  • Bruxism Mouthguards – Many people unknowingly grind their teeth while sleeping. Called bruxism, this habit can wear down your tooth enamel. This can lead to increased risk of decay and sensitivity – and even chips and breaks. If we find evidence of bruxism during an exam, we’ll recommend a custom mouthguard. Worn at night, it keeps your teeth apart and prevents grinding.

To keep your smile in good shape, get D’Iberville mouthguards from Back Bay Family Dentistry. Call us today at 228-220-2117 to schedule an appointment. You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About Mouthguards

Why are mouthguards important?

Mouthguards can serve several significant functions, including protecting your teeth, gums, and jaw while playing sports and preventing you from grinding your teeth at night. In either case, a mouthguard created by your dentist is the best way to ensure a custom, comfortable fit and that it’s made of high-quality, durable material.

Can mouthguards help with TMJ problems?

Yes! In fact, custom mouthguards are one of the most common, conservative solutions for TMJ disorder and teeth grinding. Since these oral devices fit over your upper and lower teeth, they keep you from involuntarily clenching and grinding your teeth together while you sleep. This can alleviate the pressure on your jaw, reduce painful symptoms of TMJ disorder, and allow the joint to heal naturally. It also protects your tooth enamel from damage.

How do mouthguards help bruxism?

A custom-made mouthguard works by putting a barrier between your teeth. This barrier not only protects your teeth from damage caused by grinding, it also cushions the muscles in your jaw. Relieving the pressure put on your jaw by grinding and clenching usually relieves TMJ pain and related symptoms like headaches.
