Mouth Guards in

The last thing anyone wants to experience when playing a contact sport is a severe oral injury. Just one hit can affect a person for the rest of their life. For that reason, we strongly encourage all of our patients who play contact sports to wear protective mouth guards to keep their teeth safe in the heat of the action.

Mouth Guards in Murfreesboro

By using a properly fitted mouth guard, the following problems can be prevented:

  • Lost teeth
  • Chipped or fractured teeth
  • Jawbone damage
  • Concussions
  • Oral lacerations

At Salem Creek Dental, we offer custom-made protective mouth guards that are built from the highest-quality materials available. The custom-fit of these protective devices helps to ensure the best possible level of protection and comfort. These devices are designed in such a way that they don’t interfere with normal breathing or speaking.

Since our mouth guards are custom-made, a patient will need to make two visits to our practice to receive one. The first visit will involve taking impressions which will be sent to a dental laboratory where they will be made, Once it is ready, the patient will return for a follow-up visit to ensure it fits perfectly.

Salem Creek Family Dental also offers special night guards that are designed to protect a person’s teeth while they are sleeping. Bruxism is a medical condition that causes a person to inadvertently clench and grind their teeth while asleep. If bruxism is left untreated, it can result in severe dental issues. But these problems can be prevented with a custom-fitted night guard.

I had the BEST experience at Salem Creek Family Dental! I had an extremely painful toothache and was able to get in right away and Dr. Costello was AMAZING and so was her assistant Miranda!! They helped make the experience so relaxing it was almost enjoyable! And believe me coming from someone with severe "dentist anxiety" that is saying a lot! I had no pain at all even after the procedure! Dr Costello even called the next day to check on how things were going! I recommend this dentist office to everyone!

Very best staff and exceptional dental care. The office is beautiful, comfortable and spotless. Highly recommend this dental office. I have very sensitive teeth and they always ensure a comfortable treatment. The staff is friendly and work to accommodate patients’ needs.

Dr. Costello really helped me out when I needed a mouth guard for grinding my teeth. She took the time to work with my crazy schedule and went the extra mile to let me know she was invested in my needs! Her office was so clean and welcoming, and both she and her staff are beyond kind. Thanks, Dr. Costello!
