Dental Guards & Dental Appliances
For most people, the essentials for at-home tooth care don’t extend much further than a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. However, some people have more extensive at-home dental care needs. For these patients, we provide custom-designed dental appliances made to relieve pain, protect the mouth and jaw, and keep the teeth aligned correctly. At our dentists about our professional solutions for dental injuries, nighttime teeth grinding, temporomandibular disorders, and post-orthodontic treatment maintenance.
Although most people don’t expect to experience injuries while they sleep, nighttime teeth grinding and jaw clenching is fairly common. In most cases, it is attributed to a condition called bruxism, which causes overactivity of the jaw muscles (usually during sleep). Bruxism can cause damage to the teeth and mouth and result in various types of oral and facial pain. Night guards offer a simple solution. Our dentists can customize a thin, comfortable night guard to your teeth so you can sleep soundly and wake up feeling rested, restored, and free of pain.
Retainers are the third stage in any traditional orthodontic treatment plan, and for good reason: Without a device to maintain the new positions of the teeth and jaw, it’s highly likely that they will revert back to their original positions. Our customized retainers are designed to offer a comfortable fit, combined with durable material that lasts up to the regular wear and tear of daily use.
Sports Mouth Guards
A sports mouth guard is a piece of protective gear that athletes in a variety of sports and at virtually any level wear to protect their teeth, mouth, jaw, head, and neck. If you or a family member plays a sport that involves high contact or the potential for falls, a sports guard is an essential component of regular equipment. Dentist-made sports mouth guards are often thinner and more comfortable than their store-bought counterparts, allowing athletes to focus on the game and have a high level of protection when the game gets rough.
The temporomandibular joints are responsible for opening and closing the jaw. When these joints are dysfunctional, it is typically the result of a temporomandibular disorder (TMD).
