Although it doesn’t seem like a high-risk activity, sleeping can be a significant cause of damage to the teeth and jaw. For some people with the condition known as Bruxism, an overactive jaw leads to teeth grinding. This can weaken and seriously damage the teeth over time. A custom night guard fits over the top arch of teeth to provide a protective barrier that prevents friction and grinding.
After you have had orthodontic corrections to your teeth, you’ll want to back up all of that work with support to ensure your teeth stay perfectly in place. Many patients have to wear retainers for years to fully stabilize the jaw and teeth in their new positions. A well-fitted and long-lasting retainer can make all the difference!
Sports Mouth Guards
If you play a sport that risks impacts to the head or mouth, a dentist-designed sports mouth guard can protect you from tooth loss and impact, soft tissue injuries, and head injuries, including concussions. These guards are made of high-quality dental materials that last longer, allowing you to get more use out of your guard.
