The Purpose of Nightguards and Sportsguards

Depending on the dentist, they may refer to these oral appliances as “mouthguards.” With so many varieties available, Dr. Neale makes it easy to decipher which one will suit your teen’s needs.


If your child or teenager is suffering from teeth grinding, which is also known as bruxism, you will notice their teeth appear to be worn down. They may even complain of jaw pain, as this common condition is closely associated with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).

The reason bruxism occurs is the result of stress, an abnormal bite, missing or crooked teeth, or a more serious condition known as sleep apnea.

As the parent, it is advised that you monitor your child while they sleep. Should you notice that they grind their teeth, it is in their best interest to call our office and schedule an appointment with Dr. Neale. After further examination, he can recommend a nightguard to minimize the wear and tear of tooth enamel and eliminate jaw pain.

These custom-made devices are designed to keep teeth from coming into contact with each other and will fit comfortably within your teenager’s mouth, so they experience no issues when wearing while they are asleep.


If teeth grinding isn’t the issue, you can still benefit from a custom oral appliance if your teen is actively involved in sports. No matter if it’s basketball, baseball, football, tennis, or any other contact sport, your teen’s mouth can easily succumb to damage and serious injury if hit with a hard tackle or fly ball.

Dr. Neale can create a custom sportsguard that ensures enough room for your teen to speak without problems and receive the protection they need while on the field, court, or track.


How to Tell if Your Child is a Good Candidate

While nearly all children and teenagers are qualified to receive a sportsguard, there are some who may not be an ideal candidate for a nightguard. Should your child show any of the following signs, it’s best to make an appointment with Dr. Neale to discuss which treatment option is right for their needs:

Frequent headaches
Facial pain
Tooth sensitivity
Excessive wear and tear of the tooth enamel
Chronic jaw pain
Lower jaw swelling
Tooth cracks or chips

Called at 9am to make an appointment because one of my wisdom teeth broke they got me in at 10am. Asked me if I wanted to go ahead and have all 4 wisdom teeth removed, as well as several fillings & a cleaning. So I did & I was VERY pleased with how well it went. All the girls were so friendly! Dr. Neale was so amazing & they made sure I was comfortable for the entire thing.

Dr Aaron Neale and his staff are wonderful! They are so kind and compassionate, they make you feel comfortable, and listen to their patients. I had avoided going to the dentist for so long prior because my experience at other dentist just wasn’t good. Dr Neale and his staff are so good, I didn’t feel anything with my extraction or my root canal, not even the shots to numb the area! I won’t go anywhere else!

This is the ONLY dentist I will ever take my daughters to. The entire staff has made dental visits no longer traumatized for my girls. Dr. Neale, himself has stopped working on other clients and made sure that when my girls were on the verge of having a meltdown, that they were able to get back down to their normal breathing and sweet hearted natures. Everyone in his office and on his staff, from the moment you Walk into the office, take their own time and special approach all to assure you of the best, care possible, without the fear, trauma, and brutal methods alot of other dentist s use to " manage" small children. The members of Blackwell dentistry actually do care about each and every patient they see, and I am grateful my girls are no longer fearful or having panic attacks when I inform them that their visit is due. Thank you guys so much for the time, patience, and care you give us each and every visit!!
