Dental Mouthguard in Little Elm

At Woodlake Family Dentistry in Elm, Texas, we provide our patients with quality care, and we want to help you to protect your teeth. Wearing a mouth guard will go a long way in preserving your smile.

Mouth guards help to protect your teeth from impact injuries and to cushion impacts to reduce mouth, teeth and jaw trauma. They can also help to protect you from concussion injuries.

Children and adults both benefit from wearing mouth guards. And it’s not just football or hockey players that wear them. Any physical activity where there is a risk to a hard contact should include a mouth guard. Athletes participating in La Crosse, wrestling, kickboxing, basketball or soccer are encouraged to wear a mouth guard.

Our dentist will help guide you in picking a custom mouth guard that suits you.

For patients who experience bruxism, or teeth grinding, our team at Woodlake Family Dentistry encourages you to be fitted for a night guard. Night guards, or bite guards, help to protect your teeth from crushing and grinding of teeth by providing a protective layer between your teeth. Grinding wears down teeth, erodes enamel and can chip or break your teeth. Some patients experience headaches or jaw aches from teeth grinding.

Getting a custom night guard will not only protect your teeth from expensive repair work but will also help you to enjoy a quieter and comfortable sleep.

From beginning to end this office was welcoming and warm. I must say so detailed. This is the best my teeth have felt in years. Like I was so confident when I left and didn’t feel like things were being told to me just because. My entire family comes to this office and I’m glad I am here now!
