Nightguards, Occlusal Splints, & Sports Mouthguards
Nightguards /Occlusal Splints
You'll reduce further tooth destruction as a result of bruxing, clenching, and TMJ disorders with our nightguards/occlusal splints. Each nightguard/occlusal splint is constructed of either hard or soft material, or a combination of both hard and soft material. They are ideal for both the upper and lower arches, based on the doctor's preference and the indicated use, and can be made with or without anterior guidance.
When prescribing the hard nightguards/occlusal splints, please specify if you want to engage the opposing cusps, or if you desire a flat occlusal plane. They are fabricated with a clear, heat-cured acrylic for a precision fit and we specially design the anterior region for an optimal path of insertion that can accommodate even severely flared or undercut teeth. This rigid nightguard/occlusal splint can accommodate heavy bruxers and/or patients with moderate TMJ concerns.
Our combination hard nightguard/occlusal splint with soft inner liner and our soft nightguard are both produced using 3mm thick material.
We offer the Playsafe medium duty sports mouthguard by Erkodent. They consist of a 2mm inner layer and a 4mm outer layer. The Playsafe medium duty guards are recommended for sports where objects with a large surface area may be received, such as boxing, biking, basketball, soccer, judo, wrestling, and motocross. They are always fabricated for the maxillary and are extended to the first molars only. Our sports mouthguards fit exactly onto the teeth, do not move, and allow the wearer to breath freely. Additionally, the occlusal surface captures the opposing bite. Please ask us about the available colors.
