Sports and Night Guards in Port Alberni

As strong as they are, your teeth are vulnerable to certain types of damage, especially damage from direct impacts, grinding, and clenching. Our custom-made guards keep your teeth safe from sports injury and nighttime grinding.

Sports Guards

A sports guard should be part of the protective gear for any sport where there’s a chance of impact to your jaws or teeth. Although guards are common in high impact sports like hockey or boxing, they can give you extra protection for almost any sport. Our guards are lightweight, flexible, and strong, so they protect your teeth without interfering with your focus.

Bite Appliances for Bruxism

Bruxism, or nighttime grinding, is a major cause of injury to your teeth. If you grind or clench your teeth at night, you put them at risk of severe damage. Grinding can also lead to other complications such as TMJ disorder in your jaw. A nighttime bite appliance restricts your jaw from moving while you sleep, keeping you from grinding your teeth.
