We recommend nightguards and sportguards to Barrington, IL, patients because they provide an extra level of protection for your smile. Unlike the boil-and-bite mouthguards you may find at your local drug store, we custom design ours for optimum fit and comfort. Providing the very best protection for your teeth, gums, lips, and cheeks is one of the most important things we can do to help you protect your most valuable asset — your smile!
Protect Your Smile with Custom Mouthguards and Nightguards from our Barrington Dentist!
A custom sportsguard is specifically created to protect your mouth. It’s designed by Dr. Jackson using a thin plastic material that fits the contours of your mouth perfectly. The thinness of the guard makes for comfortable wear and easy breathing. They should be worn by all athletes, particularly those involved in contact sports.
If your smile shows signs of wear due to clenching and grinding, you could benefit from a nightguard. Nightguards are designed to protect your teeth and TMJ during sleep, when you’re unable to control the grinding. The guards provide a cushion between the upper and lower teeth to prevent wear of natural tooth enamel and damage to any restorative dentistry placed on your teeth. Our nightguards can also provide significant relief of facial pain, migraine headaches, and other symptoms of TMJ when properly fabricated to balance the biting forces.
