Dental Mouth Guards in
At Ellenton Family Dental, it is one of our top priorities to help you maintain your dental health and to help protect your teeth from damage. Custom-made dental mouth guards offered at our practice can help protect your teeth from a variety of risks.
A dental mouth guard is an indispensable piece of equipment that protects your teeth against injury and damage. Custom dental mouth guards that are created by taking impressions of your teeth are much more effective than their over-the-counter alternatives. A custom-made mouth guard fits over your teeth perfectly and does not interfere with your speech and breathing, making it more comfortable and easier to wear.
Uses of a dental mouth guard or night guard:
To protect the teeth from injury while playing sports
So many of us lead an active lifestyle which involves participating in various types of sports and activities. A custom-made dental mouth guard can be worn over the teeth during activities to protect the teeth, mouth and jaw from injury caused by impact.
To counter the effects of bruxism
Bruxism is the habit of clenching and grinding the teeth, especially at night. This can cause migraine-like headaches, pain in the jaw and facial muscles, stiffness in the shoulders, earache, disrupted sleep, inflammation and recession of the gums, increased tooth mobility and more. In the long term, the problem of bruxism can cause disorders of the Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and can even lead to teeth fractures. A custom-made dental night guard created just for you can be easily worn over the teeth at night. A night guard prevents the teeth in the upper and lower jaw from rubbing against each other, thereby preventing damage and pain.

Dr. Whaley is soft-spoken and always as gentle as possible. He is thorough and very honest and he does excellent work. His office staff is efficient and Tina is a great cheerleader for the patients. He is far more reasonable than other dentists in this area and has the most modern equipment I have ever seen in a dentist’s office.
This has been one of the best dental experiences I have ever had. Attention to detail. Caring, kind, professional staff. So glad I found them. Highly recommended.
I had a toothache and I called them last minute to be seen and they accommodated my schedule and took care of my pain! Dr. Whaley and Tina are so professional and friendly I no longer have to be scared to go to the dentist! Thank you so much to all of the staff at Ellenton family dental.
Patient comfort is a top priority for Dr. Whaley, and he wants every patient to walk away satisfied.
