Mouth Guards:
Protect Your Smile

Custom-Fit Sports Mouth Guards

Hundreds of thousands of Americans a year sustain dental injuries during competitive play, and a large number of those injured are children.

Research has shown that wearing custom-fit sports mouth guards can reduce the risk of severe injuries. The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that the use of mouthguards prevents approximately 200,000 injuries per year in high school and college football alone.

Anyone who plays sports or engages in athletic activity, whether competitive or not, can protect themselves by wearing an athletic mouthguard. We offer custom, form-fitting mouth guards to patients of all ages.

Damaging jaw and tooth impact can be caused by everything from a direct contact to an awkward or misplaced step while running. Custom-made Intact mouthguards provide stability to your jaw and cushion the blows that can cause severe dental injuries, like broken teeth, fractures in the jaw, gum lacerations and injuries to your lips or tongue caused by your own teeth.

Growing evidence suggests that quality, properly fitting mouthguards also reduce the forces that can cause concussions and neck injuries.

The Advantage of using a Dentist to create your Mouth Guard

We can ensure that your mouth guard is tightly fit to your teeth to provide maximum protection. Utilizing our digital x-ray technology, we will make sure that the guard is fitted to protect your teeth, gums, lips, tongue and cheeks. We provide mouth guards in different colors and designs.

Custom-Fit Night Guards Bruxism Splints (stop grinding teeth at night!)

Jaw pain can be caused by many different types of problems: arthritis, jaw injury, or muscle fatigue from clenching or grinding your teeth during sleep or while awake. Teeth grinding is also referred to as Bruxism in the dental field.

What are the symptoms?

  • Teeth become worn down due to excessive grinding
  • Pain or tenderness in the face, jaw joint area, neck and shoulders, and in or around the ear when you chew, speak, or open your mouth wide
  • Limited ability to open the mouth very wide
  • Jaws that get “stuck” or “locked” in the open or closed mouth position
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth
  • Difficulty chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite
  • Swelling on the side of the face
  • Toothaches

We offer custom-fit night guard mouth guards – or splints – that can help you stop grinding your teeth at night. We will create a night guard oral appliance specifically for you, so that it will fit comfortably and not prevent you from sleeping. By managing your Bruxism, we can lessen the symptoms of it.

I found Dr. Dennis on the radio. As long as I can remember, I have been afraid of the dentist. Upon entering the office, my sister and I were greeted warm and professionally. I was provided explanations that have never been provided. Dr. Dennis was awesome. After seven years with one dentist, Dr. Dennis is my new dentist.

I finally found a good dentist in the Atlanta Area!!! I tried a couple of others but they did not impress me at all. I'm pretty particular about my dental hygiene.
Dr. Dentist (Dennis) my name for her, was a really informative caring provider.

The entire staff offers a very pleasant and professional environment. I have always had a fear of the dentist. As a result I have several problems with my teeth. Dr. Dennis is a very compassionate dentist and for that reason, I will continue to visit her office for dental treatment.
