Sports guards and bite appliances
The two most common ways we damage our teeth are through sports injuries and night-time grinding.
Playing sports is a great hobby, but it can put your teeth at risk. If you’re an athlete we strongly recommend you wear a sports guard. We can create a custom sports guard that will cushion and protect your teeth from harmful impact. This type of appliance can also help reduce the severity of concussions due to impact.
Often people grind their teeth or clench their jaw while they sleep. This is called “bruxism,” and may leave you with headaches and jaw pain – as well as a sore mouth and damaged teeth. We can create a custom bite appliance for you to wear while you sleep to prevent you from further harming your teeth.
