We can help you if you grind your teeth at night. Teeth grinding is often due to stress and wears your teeth down. It can also cause jaw pain and headaches. At City Dental, we design a personalized nightguard, after assessing your particular problems. We make an impression of your teeth and you can pick up your splint within 1-2 weeks. With our comfortable splints you will be able to sleep well again.
Mandibular advancement splint
City Dental’s snoring specialist can help you if you suffer from snoring. We design a mandibular advancement splint, which is customized to your upper and lower jaw and helps keep your airway open while you sleep.
The device works in three different ways:
- It keeps your lower jaw in a forward position.
- It keeps your tongue away from the soft palate and the posterior pharyngeal wall.
- It tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the pharynx.
We adjust the thickness of your mouthguard to the sport you play. The mouthguard is made of layers of different materials, a soft inside and a hard outside. The mouthguard can’t completely eliminate damage to the teeth caused by a blow to the mouth, but limits the damage considerably.
Mouthguard for hockey players
During the season 2003/2004, the Swedish Ice Hockey Association adopted a new rule, according to which all players born 1984 or later, who are allowed to play without a visor, must wear a mouthguard. The mouthguard must be made by a dentist.
Mouthguard for martial artists
If you practice martial arts (such as Thai boxing, boxing, or rugby), there’s often a set of rules requiring that you wear a mouthguard when practicing your sport. Boxers must, for example, always wear individually fitted mouthguards.
