A dental guard is perhaps the smartest way to protect your teeth, whether they’re natural or enhanced. Guards are inexpensive, help you unlearn bad habits and are great protection from all kinds of damage.
Bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding, can wear your teeth down by damaging the enamel that forms the outer layer of each tooth. Even though enamel is durable and hardy, years of constant pressure can cause it to crack and disappear - resulting in painful sensations, cavities and permanently discoloured teeth.
Making matters worse, the same habits that lead to grinding can cause snoring, which is awkward and bothersome for everyone around. Our night guards solve both problems by physically preventing patients from grinding their teeth with a painless solution that doesn’t restrain breathing or cause discomfort.
A high-impact sports moment can easily result in chipped teeth, torn gums and even a completely missing tooth. This is especially common in combat sports and hockey - but can really happen in any sport where your tooth might meet a hard surface.
One way to prevent this kind of damage from happening is with a store-bought mouth guard - but the truth is, those are not made with your teeth in mind and, as a result, only offer so much. They will not keep your teeth in place and away from harm as well as custom-made teeth.
That’s why it’s important you get a custom pair of night or dental guards if you’re serious about protecting your teeth. Your guards can be fitted and changed over time, meaning massive savings when compared to store-bought varieties. Book an appointment to get your measurements now at (610) 458-5165 .
