Rock Hill SC Mouth Guards

Sports guards and night guards work as they should when they are custom made for your mouth. At our Rock Hill office we have the equipment and training to make mouth guards that work as they should to protect your mouth. 

Do you want to provide the best protection possible for your mouth? Contact Cranford Dental to discuss the differences between custom fitted guards and those you buy at the drugstore.

Do you need a Night Guard?

Bruxguards, sometimes called Night guards, are custom-fitted bite appliances that we often recommend to help protect your teeth, jaws, or existing dental work. If you have one or more of the following, a night guard may be the answer for you:

  • Grinding or clenching your teeth at night—and often noisy
  • Signs of wear on your front or back teeth
  • Jaw pain in the morning or throughout the day
  • Multiple crowns, veneers, or fillings that a night guard can protect

How will a Night Guard help you?

teenager-with-dr-cranfordA night guard will provide a barrier between your upper and lower teeth to help protect them from wear.

It will also align your jaws in the proper position while you sleep, so that the jaw muscles are able to relax and give you relief from pain.

For a night guard to work properly it must have the right fit and be made from the right materials.

We recommend a custom fitted night guard made by a professional dental lab. Over the counter guards are made from a rubbery material that your teeth can easily chew into, which can result in even more jaw soreness.

Custom made night guards that fit well will help relieve teeth and jaw problems for many years.

Do you need an Athletic Mouth Guard?


“I so firmly believe in the protection that mouth guards provide that I wish all coaches required their athletes to wear them.” – Dr. Elizabeth Cranford


If your answer to the following questions is “yes”, then you are a candidate for a custom-fitted athletic mouth guard:

  • Do you play sports?
  • Do you want to protect your teeth from permanent loss or breakage?

Please wear an athletic mouth guard while you play sports. We have seen College brusher multi taskercountless patients needing extensive dental work following sports injuries to their mouths. Many if not all of these injuries could have been avoided with a properly fitted Mouth Guard.

What type of Mouth Guard is best for an athlete?

Studies prove that a mouth guard made by your dentist will fit better and provide better protection than a “boil and bite” guard from a sports store.

Our athletic mouth guards are comfortable and easy to talk in while store purchased guards feel thick and awkward in the mouth. Athletes are much more likely to insert and leave in the more comfortable guard.

You can potentially save yourself money, pain, and time by being measured for a custom-fitted mouth guard. Call our Rock Hill office at 803-324-7670 or email Cranford Dental to schedule an appointment.
