For athletes who participate in contact sports or activities where a blow to the face is possible, mouth guards are an essential piece of equipment. These oral devices can prevent serious damage to your teeth and mouth. We also offer night guards for patients who suffer from nocturnal bruxism.
At Highland Oaks Family Dentistry, we understand that sports are a way of life in Texas. You take your performance seriously, and so do we. We make sure that our mouth guards are made with the highest quality of materials, and that they are the perfect, customized fit for your teeth and bite. Over-the-counter options for mouth guards may provide you with some protection, but they will not provide the same amount of comfort and customization. With our mouth guards, you will be able to speak and breathe normally. After a few uses, you won’t even notice it’s there, allowing you to focus solely on your performance on the field. A custom-made mouth guard from our expert team may mean the difference between a serious injury and staying in for the next play.

We also offer night guards at Highland Oaks Family Dentistry for patients who suffer from nocturnal bruxism. Nocturnal bruxism is a condition in which people unknowingly clench or grind their teeth while sleeping. This can lead to issues such as jaw pain, recurring headaches, worn-down enamel and tooth fractures. A night guard is an oral device that can be worn overnight to prevent you from clenching or grinding your teeth.
Protective night guards and athletic mouth guards are available at Highland Oaks Family Dentistry. Take the first step to protect your teeth from injury or nighttime grinding by calling our dental office at (817) 520-5255 to schedule an appointment.
