Have you had expensive dental work done and want to keep your teeth in top shape? Do you or your kids participate in sporting activities? Does stress or a medical condition cause you to clench or grind your teeth at night? Then, Joe Cochran, DDS has a great solution for you—custom-made dental mouthguards! We offer both sports guards and nightguards to protect your smile and keep you comfortable.
Dentist-made sportsguards have been proven to be more than twice as effective, not only at protecting you and your kids from dental injuries but also from a concussion. According to a study in the May/June 2014 issue of General Dentistry, the peer-reviewed clinical journal of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), high school football players wearing over-the-counter, as opposed to dentist-made, mouthguards were more than twice as likely to suffer mild traumatic brain injuries or concussions than those wearing custom-made, properly fitted mouthguards.
Nightguards can also have a tremendous benefit for those who want to protect their teeth or restorations from ongoing damage or who clench and grind. These guards are also custom-made and fitted for ideal comfort while you sleep.
