Dental Mouthguards at Yakima Valley Dentistry

Protecting your teeth is essential, whether you’re an athlete facing contact sports or someone who grinds their teeth at night. At Yakima Valley Dentistry, we offer custom dental mouthguards designed to provide superior protection, comfort, and durability. Unlike over-the-counter options, our mouthguards are tailored specifically to fit your mouth, ensuring the highest level of protection and a comfortable fit. Discover the benefits of our custom dental mouthguards and how they can safeguard your smile:

Types of Dental Mouthguards We Offer:

Sports Mouthguards: Engaging in sports, especially contact sports, increases the risk of dental injuries. Our custom sports mouthguards are designed to fit snugly over your teeth, providing optimal protection against impacts, reducing the risk of tooth fractures, dislocations, and soft tissue injuries. They’re an essential piece of equipment for athletes of all ages and levels.

Night Guards for Bruxism: If you grind or clench your teeth while sleeping, a condition known as bruxism, you’re at risk of damaging your teeth and experiencing jaw pain and headaches. Our custom night guards provide a barrier between your upper and lower teeth, preventing wear and tear from grinding, and helping to alleviate the symptoms associated with bruxism.

Benefits of Custom Dental Mouthguards:

  • Personalized Fit: Custom mouthguards are made from impressions of your teeth, ensuring a perfect fit that’s comfortable to wear and doesn’t obstruct breathing or speaking.
  • Superior Protection: Because they’re specifically designed for your mouth, custom mouthguards offer superior protection compared to generic, boil-and-bite options available in stores.
  • Durability: Made from high-quality materials, custom mouthguards are durable and long-lasting, providing you with protection game after game, or night after night.
  • Prevention of Dental Injuries: Custom mouthguards can significantly reduce the risk of sports-related dental injuries and the effects of bruxism, including tooth wear, chips, and fractures.
