Protect Your Teeth Overnight With Mouthguards and Night Guards
Here at Advanced Dental Wellness, we are able to provide custom-fitted mouthguards to protect your teeth from a number of issues, including jaw clenching, teeth grinding, or sporting injury.
Have you ever been told you grind your teeth at night? Do you feel yourself clenching your teeth when you are stressed? This is a condition called bruxism. Bruxism is the habitual, sometimes unconscious, grinding of the teeth, and can happen during the day or while you sleep.
This condition can cause major problems for the teeth and jaws including:
- Sore or achy jaw joints and muscles.
- Broken tooth or teeth.
- Chipped or flattened teeth.
- Tooth sensitivity.
- Gum recession.
While the cause of bruxism isn’t always straightforward, the treatment can be! Left untreated, bruxism can cause major problems that have the potential to be both painful and expensive. At Advanced Dental Wellness, we can create a custom-fit night guard to prevent bruxism from further damaging your teeth.
To do this, an impression is taken of your teeth, which is then used to design your custom night guard. After a quick adjustment appointment, your night guard will be fit to your needs and be ready for nighttime wear.
Tooth-related injuries can be a major problem for athletes of all ages. Rather than fixing these injuries after the fact, we recommend using a mouthpiece to safeguard your teeth ahead of time. A custom-fit, professionally made athletic mouth guard can help prevent such injuries including:
- A broken tooth or teeth.
- Chipped teeth.
- Complete tooth loss.
They can also lessen the risk and severity of concussions.
A custom-fit athletic mouthguard made at Advanced Dental Wellness can help prevent tooth-related injuries while also being more comfortable, less bulky, and less painful to wear than an over-the-counter mouthguard.
