Don’t let bruxism wear down your smile.

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, can cause abrasion to the chewing surfaces of your teeth, making them appear abnormally short or worn down. This can cause:

 

  • Headaches
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Abnormal wear and tear
  • Prematurely aging teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Chronic jaw pain
  • Chronic facial pain

A brux guard is a bruxism appliance made to snap into place on your top teeth and is worn during sleep to prevent the grinding away of opposing tooth structure. To make one, we take a simple impression of your mouth and is send it to our dental lab to fabricate your custom appliance. The fitting appointment takes less than ten minutes.

 

Sleep better—and quieter.

 

A sleep apnea dental device is an oral apparatus developed to keep the air passage open so patients can continuously breathe while sleeping. Designed to treat mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea, a mandibular repositioning device pushes the lower jaw forward and down in a moderate motion to open the airway. It also softens the throat tissues and prevents them from collapsing and disturbing the airway, effectively reducing the loudness of snoring.

 

Protect teeth during sports with an athletic mouth guard.

 

Anyone who participates in a sport that carries a significant risk of injury should wear a mouth guard. This includes:

  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Gymnastics
  • Volleyball

Mouth guards, which typically cover the upper teeth, can cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth. If you wear braces or another fixed dental appliance on your lower jaw, we may suggest a mouth guard for these teeth as well. Athletic mouth guards are easy to wear and come in a variety of colors for you to choose from.

For all dental appliances, a simple impression is taken of your mouth and is sent to our dental lab to fabricate your custom mouth piece. The fitting appointment takes less than ten minutes from start to completion.
