You can protect your teeth and reduce or eliminate the pain grinding causes you by sleeping with a nightguard. OC Family Dentistry can custom-fit a nightguard for your mouth and give you a restful night’s sleep free of grinding and pain.


Dental injuries are among the most common sports injuries. Studies have shown that athletes not wearing mouthguards are 60 times more likely to suffer mouth injuries. The required use of mouthguards in high school and college prevents over 200,000 injuries each year, according to the American Dental Association.
