NIGHTGUARDS / MOUTHGUARDS
Dr. Castiblanco recommends mouthguards to protect the jaw and teeth during physical activity, particularly during sports such as boxing, football, basketball, or other activities where your mouth may get hit. In addition, these guards protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining. Encore Family Dentistry also provide nightguards for dental patients who clench or grind their teeth at night as a way to protect their teeth and bite.
Once you and Dr. Castiblanco decide that a guard is right for you, she will take an impression of your teeth. Then, the dental lab will make a custom-designed mouthguard or nightguard out of flexible plastic molded to fit the shape of your teeth. In most cases you can choose from a variety of colors and styles. On average, guards last 3 to 10 years.
The NTI devices is a much smaller biteguard that fits over the front two teeth. The NTI is also a recognized treatment for many types of migraine headaches
