Sports guards and bite splints

We work with you to keep your teeth protected

Your teeth can be damaged in many different ways, but the most common ways are through sports injuries and nighttime grinding.

At Great Lakes Family Dental Group in Livonia, we can create custom appliances that protect your teeth from these forms of harm, and reduce your chances of chipping, damaging, or losing a tooth.

Bite splints: If you often wake up with headaches or jaw pain, you probably grind your teeth or clench your jaw while you sleep. This is called “bruxism,” and it can really hurt your teeth -- and leave your mouth sore. Ask us about creating a custom bite splint to prevent you from doing further harm to your smile.

Sports guards: If you play sports, it’s essential to be wearing a sports guard. Your teeth need to be protected from crashing together or being struck, and we can create a custom sports guard that provides the cushioning and protection they need.
