We are pleased to offer multiple types of mouth guards and night guards at Dong Won Kim Family Dental Care. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Kim, Dr. Kim, and Dr. Jun, will help you determine which type of mouth guard in Lawrence, Massachusetts is right for your specific dental needs. We offer athletic mouth guards (sports guards) and night guards. Sports guards are typically recommended for our patients who participate in sports, especially high-contact sports like rugby, football, hockey, and wrestling. The sports guard fits over your teeth to protect your smile from injury while you play. Athletic mouth guards are important in preventing dental injury while staying active.
We also offer night guards for patients who suffer from bruxism. Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding and clenching, can result in serious damage to your teeth, as well as other painful symptoms like migraines and tension headaches, jaw pain, and facial pain. The night guard is worn at night to prevent you from clenching and grinding your teeth while you sleep. By fitting over your teeth and preventing teeth grinding, a night guard can relieve the painful symptoms of bruxism and prevent excessive tooth wear and damage.
