About Mouth Guards
Why do I need a mouthguard?
There are several different reasons that patients may benefit from the use of a mouth guard.
Protection for athletes playing sports.
Our dentist can custom-make a mouth guard for you at Townsley Family Dentistry. The mouth guard will be created from an impression of your teeth. A well-fitted mouth guard creates the highest level of comfort and easily stays in place. This helps patients sleep more comfortably. The dentist can make mouth guards specifically to help with snoring or mild sleep apnea.
