At Rebol Family Dentistry, we strive to help our patients address any and all dental concerns under one roof. This means that we can also help patients who have unique tooth protection needs. Tooth protection is a proactive step that can prevent the need for costly restorative care due to dental damages later on. The best way to protect your teeth while participating in close-contact sports is with a custom mouthguard. Custom mouthguards are designed specifically for your smile and will comfortable and securely protect your teeth when you need them to the most. Learn more about custom mouthguard below.

Oral Appliance Therapy Options for TMJ Disorders
Patients who experience jaw pain from TMJ disorders may benefit from using a custom nightguard, or a mouthguard that is worn at night. This is known as oral appliance therapy and can help hold your jawbone in a healthy resting position as you sleep. This means that you will wake up with a fully-rested jawbone and relaxed facial muscles for less jaw pain and tension headaches throughout the day. Talk to your dentist if you experience any TMJ related symptoms to find out if you are a candidate for oral appliance therapy.
