What are mouth guards?

Dr. Romeo and Dr. Cardenas are committed to treating all aspects of your dental health, which is why we are pleased to offer dental devices known as night guards and mouth guards. Mouth guards are made of durable plastic and fit snugly over the teeth and gums to act as a protective shield. Mouth guards are generally used for our patients involved in physical activities, such as:

  • Wrestling
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Rugby
  • Skateboarding
  • Skiing
  • Snowboarding
  • Water polo
  • Lacrosse

Our dentists are skilled in working with schools, teams, and organizations to create custom-made mouth guards that will fit properly and meet your specific requirements.

What are night guards?

Night guards are similar to mouth guards, but are used to treat dental conditions that occur as you sleep. The three most common conditions night guards help treat are bruxism (teeth grinding), snoring, and sleep apnea. Our night guards are made of plastic and are designed to be comfortable and easy to sleep in.
