Mouth Guards in

We recommend that anyone participating in contact sports use mouth guards in order to prevent injury to the mouth, teeth and jaw. They are worn over the teeth, and they are specifically designed with comfort and protection in mind. At Downriver Smiles, we offer mouth guards that are custom-fit to provide patients with the best protection possible. We also recommend night guards to people who suffer from the unwanted habit of clenching and grinding their teeth while asleep.

Mouth Guards in Spokane

The custom-fit mouth guards from Downriver Smiles provide higher levels of comfort and protection than store-purchased alternatives. Our mouth guards are constructed using impressions of the patient’s teeth to provide a custom-fit that cannot be found in over-the-counter versions. Since they make use of top-quality, lightweight materials, they will not interfere with the wearer’s normal speaking or breathing.

Contact sports present a risk of structural damage to the jaw and mouth, which can be greatly reduced by wearing a custom-fit mouth guard. Additionally, mouth guards have been proven to prevent concussions and lacerations of the tongue, lips and cheeks.

Downriver Smiles also offers night guards for patients. Night guards are a special type of mouth guards that are built for people who suffer from bruxism, or the uncontrolled habit of clenching and grinding one’s teeth when sleeping. If left untreated, bruxism can lead to excessive wear and tear on the teeth, jaw discomfort, headaches and tooth fractures. Also available are custom-fit splints for people with sleep disorders such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and excessive snoring.
