State Street Smiles is pleased to offer several types of nightguards and mouthguards for patients to use in a variety of situations, including the following:

  • Bruxism. Bruxism is a condition that can cause clenching and grinding of the teeth. This can be extremely painful and also damaging to the teeth. By using a nighttime mouthguard for grinding teeth, you can reduce muscle tension in the jaw and protect the natural teeth and dental restorations from damage.
  • TMJ mouthguard. Patients diagnosed with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder can benefit from wearing a custom-made TMJ mouthguard. These guards help to reduce stress on the jaw and protect the joints, muscles, and teeth from further damage or injury.
  • Sports mouthguards. Wearing a sports mouthguard is vital to any athlete’s protective gear. Custom-fitted sports mouthguards provide superior protection against injuries such as broken teeth, oral lacerations, or concussions resulting from direct blows to the face and jaws. Not only do they protect your teeth, but they also provide cushioned support for your cheeks and lips so that you can stay focused on playing your best.
  • Sleep apnea/snoring appliances. Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder characterized by a cessation of breathing during sleep. Snoring can also be disruptive to those who share the same sleeping space. Custom-fitted snore guards or sleep apnea appliances are designed to hold the airways open while you sleep, allowing for uninterrupted breathing and restful nights.
