Stop grinding and save your teeth
Mouth guards can help patients that might be involved in sports to protect the teeth, especially front, the anterior teeth where they’re more prone to getting hit, chipped, fractured. Night guards are good for people that might experience pain when they wake up because they clench or grind. It might be in the TMJ. It might just be the signs of wearing and chipping teeth, so at night we can have them wearing a bruxism appliance and that can take a lot of wear and tear off the teeth. Kids playing athletics, adults playing athletics. If you get hit in the mouth, if you could fracture those front teeth, that can lead to some pretty big complications. That might even mean you’re going to be missing teeth. Then you have to restore them with implants, bridges and sometimes, if that’s not possible, we might have to go with a different solution.
Bruxism appliances are really nice because lots of patients, lots of people, everyone has stress. We clench, we grind and it can cause some damage to the teeth. Wear and tear. It might even cause chipping and cracking. Or it might just mean you wake up in the morning and the muscles are sore, the joints sore, and that can alleviate some of that, if we protect our teeth with a bruxism appliance. If the kids are playing sports, if you’re involved in athletics, if you’re waking up in the morning with sore muscles, or you think you’re clenching or grinding, or even if your partner snores at night, we can do something about that most often. So come on in, see us, and we’ll give you our best opinion.
