Keep your smile safe during sports and sleep with custom guards! Anderson & Breding Dental in Fargo, ND offers personalized occlusal and sports guards for optimal protection.

What are occlusal guards?
Occlusal guards, also known as night guards or bite splints, are custom-made oral appliances designed to protect the teeth and jaws from the harmful effects of bruxism (teeth grinding) and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

How do occlusal guards work?
Occlusal guards are worn while sleeping to create a barrier between the upper and lower teeth, preventing them from coming into contact with each other during grinding or clenching episodes. They help alleviate symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and tooth wear.

Who can benefit from occlusal guards?
Individuals who grind their teeth at night or experience symptoms of TMJ disorders such as jaw pain, muscle stiffness, and clicking or popping sounds may benefit from wearing occlusal guards. Additionally, athletes who participate in contact sports can benefit from sports guards.

What are sports guards?
Sports guards, also known as mouthguards or athletic mouthpieces, are protective devices worn over the teeth during sports and physical activities to prevent dental injuries such as fractures, avulsions (knocked-out teeth), and soft tissue lacerations.

Why are custom occlusal and sports guards recommended?
Custom occlusal and sports guards offer superior fit, comfort, and protection compared to over-the-counter options. They are custom-made based on impressions of your teeth for a precise fit and optimal effectiveness in preventing dental injuries and disorders.

How are custom occlusal and sports guards made?
At Anderson & Breding Dental, custom occlusal and sports guards are fabricated using advanced dental materials and techniques. After taking impressions of your teeth, our dental team creates guards that are tailored to your unique bite and oral anatomy.
