Mouth guards help prevent trauma to your teeth during athletic activities. Our West Columbia SC dentist at Columbia Smile Center makes custom fitted mouth guards to protect your smile for soccer, football, etc.
Mouth Guards for Grinding
Certain mouth guards also protect patients from grinding their teeth in their sleep. These guards are often called “night guards”. This grinding habit is referred to as “bruxism” and can lead to headaches. It can be a result of TMJ temporomandibular joint disorder.
