You may benefit from having a custom night guard or mouthguard created for you at the family dentistry office of Dr. Michael Bleyzer in Pomona, NY, and serving the Stony Point and Rockland County area. Learn more about these dental devices and how they can save your teeth from injury, erosion, and orthodontic issues.

Why You Might Need a Night Guard

Have you ever woken up after a long night of sleep and felt yourself clenching your teeth together tightly? You might even find yourself clenching them when you’re awake, unconsciously. This is a common issue for patients called bruxism. It can be caused by stress, and in other cases it could be caused by an orthodontic problem. It can erode the enamel and put pressure on your teeth. A night guard is the best solution for someone who has a continuing issue with bruxism. It keeps the teeth comfortably apart while you sleep.

Purpose of Athletic Mouthguards

Sports are fun and come with many benefits for your physical and mental fitness, but they can also put a patient at a higher risk of dental injuries. Sports like basketball, football, and boxing require physical contact between participants, which can lead to dental emergencies. Wearing an athletic mouthguard while playing sports can protect the teeth from common injuries.

Customizing a Device

To create a custom dental mouthguard or night guard, your Stony Point, Rockland County, and Pomona dentist must take a mold of your teeth. It is a quick appointment. You’ll simply press your teeth into a tray containing a special, pasty dental material. After that visit, you will be able to pick up your custom device in a week or two.

Protect Your Smile

A night guard or mouthguard can help protect your smile from dental erosion and injuries if you play sports. Dr. Bleyzer, the official dentist of the Rockland Boulders, can have a special device made just for you at his office serving the Stony Point, Rockland County, and Pomona, NY, area.
