Dental Guards and Appliances
Although our teeth are very resilient, sometimes they require additional protection. Fortunately, our dental clinic offers several different dental guards and appliances to help reduce damage to your teeth, tongue, and lips. Each device is custom-made to fit the dimensions of your mouth, so you won’t have to worry about it slipping out of place.
Grinding and clenching are two common nighttime habits. The pressure and friction that these actions create can wear down the enamel on your teeth or cause your teeth to become cracked or chipped. Night guards are a great solution to prevent such from happening and therefore preserve your oral health.
Retainers are often given to individuals who’ve just received orthodontic treatment. These devices are used to keep your teeth in place. Retainers are typically worn at night and can be removable or permeant. Permanent retainers consist of a metal bar that’s installed behind your teeth to ensure that they remain in position.
Staying active is an important aspect of staying healthy. However, such sports can cause facial and oral injuries as well. That’s why dentists recommend receiving a customized sports guard to protect your teeth. Contact our dental clinic for more information.
