Guards & Dental Appliances

At Tecumseh Family Dental, we provide our patients with professionally designed and custom-fitted mouth guards and dental appliances. These high-quality appliances serve to protect and support your teeth.

Night Guards

Night guards are often prescribed to patients who suffer from bruxism. Bruxism is the medical term for habitual teeth grinding and jaw clenching. It mostly happens at night, and a sufferer may be unaware of their problem. Chronic teeth grinding puts undue pressure on your teeth and jaw joint, which can further lead to complications. It can lead to wearing down of the teeth and make them sensitive. Moreover, it can lead to chronic jaw pain and jaw-joint disorders in the long term.

A night guard is made of medical-grade soft plastic, which ensures its safety. It prevents the upper and lower teeth from coming in contact while you sleep and alleviates symptoms of bruxism. Nightguards are crucial to preventing damage to the teeth and help prevent pain and jaw-joint disorders. Customized night guards are specially designed to serve this purpose and offer a comfortable fit.


In most cases, your dentist will prescribe you a retainer after the completion of your orthodontic treatment. A professionally made retainer is the best and a fool-proof way of ensuring that your teeth stay stable and in place. Teeth have a tendency to move back to their original position after orthodontic treatment, and a retainer ensures this does not happen by stabilizing and supporting the teeth and surrounding tissue. A retainer helps your teeth stay in their new position and that your treatment is successful.

Sport Mouth Guards

Sport mouth guards form an integral part of a sporting kit, especially if you play contact sports like boxing, hockey, basketball, baseball, or soccer. These guards protect your teeth, gums and oral soft tissues from any injury you may endure while playing. Although sport mouth guards can be acquired from a drug store, they do not offer any protection as they are created to be one size fits all. Therefore, a custom fitted mouthguard is essential.

A custom-fit sports mouthguard is made according to your jaw and teeth position. It offers genuine protection and supports your teeth while you concentrate on your gameplay. Sport mouth guards provided by our dentist at Tecumseh Family Dental are made from high-quality material to ensure a firm and durable fit.


Dentures are a type of dental prostheses provided at Tecumseh Family Dental that replaces missing and lost teeth. Dentures can be partial or complete and are removable. Dentures that replace one or a few missing teeth are known as partial dentures. Whereas if it replaces all your teeth, it is called a complete denture. Dentures allow you to regain your oral function. It corrects speech and will enable you to eat properly.
