Confidence Boost… A Reason to Smile

Protect Your Teeth with Custom Dental Appliances in Dartmouth

Protecting your teeth from damage beforehand can help you avoid painful surgeries and restorative procedures. At Dartmouth Dental Centre, we focus on helping you prevent tooth damage and maintain oral health with dental appliances such as mouthguards and bite plates. While mouthguards are recommended to athletes to protect teeth and gums during contact sports, bite plates are used to help ease the discomfort caused by TMJ dysfunction and bruxism. Visit our dental clinic in Dartmouth if you require dental appliances to protect your teeth.


Night-time clenching and grinding (bruxism) and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction (TMD) can not only damage your teeth but also cause tremendous pain. TMD is multifactorial and involves bone/cartilage, nerves, and muscles. A variety of treatment options are available, including behaviour/habit modification, bite plane therapy, physical or massage therapy, medications, and even surgery. Your treatment will depend on your diagnosis. If your case is more complex, our dentist will refer you to a certified TMD specialist to diagnose and treat you.

Sports Mouthguards

While participating in contact sports, you can easily damage your teeth and gums. An easy solution to protect yourself from injuries is to use a mouthguard. We can fabricate custom-made mouthguards for our athlete patients. Our mouthguards are thinner, stronger, and allow for more airflow than the typical over-the-counter mouthguards. A mouthguard is always a better alternative to having your teeth replaced due to injuries.
