Tooth Clenching/ Mouth Guard

Beyond cavities, other threats such as bruxism, TMD and even accidents can impact your dental health. That’s why at Coral Gables dentistry we know that safeguarding your smile should involve more than just brushing, flossing and dental check-ups.  

For extra protection, we can offer dental appliances such as mouthguards and sportsguards—they will help you keep your dental health intact.

What is Bruxism/Tooth Clenching?

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, involves involuntary clenching and grinding, often unnoticed, especially during sleep. It can lead to headaches, tooth and filling damage, and neck pain. While mild cases may not need treatment, undiagnosed bruxism can cause painful complications.

Various bite appliances are available for treatment, and our office will determine the best option for you.

What Is Temporomandibular Disorder?

TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder) affects the jaw joint and muscles, leading to symptoms like jaw pain and clicking sounds. Causes include teeth grinding, jaw injuries, or stress.

In many cases, TMJ symptoms can be treated easily and effectively. Our office provides diagnosis and treatment of TMJ issues. In more severe cases, Dr. Davila and Dr. Osorio will refer you to specialists who may indicate more involved methods of treatment.

What Oral Appliances Do You Offer?

Mouth Guards

Mouthguards are protective devices worn over teeth to prevent grinding, clenching, and potential damage. Custom-fitted for comfort, they serve as a barrier, offering a simple yet effective solution for maintaining dental health.

Sports Guards

Sportsguards are custom-fitted oral devices designed to protect teeth during physical activities or sports. Acting as a shield, they absorb impact forces and minimize the risk of dental injuries, providing essential defense for an active lifestyle. The custom-fabricated mouthguards made at Coral Gables Dentistry guarantee a proper fit and better performance for the protection of teeth during sporting activities.  


In our office, you can also find retainers. They are custom-made dental devices designed to maintain the alignment of your teeth after orthodontic treatment. They help prevent teeth from shifting back to their original positions, ensuring the success of orthodontic work and preserving an aligned smile.
