Mouth Guards for Children and Adults
Teeth grinding, medically known as Bruxism, causes the enamel covering your teeth to deteriorate and shrink. Although this enamel starts out being durable and hardy, years of grinding can cause it to disappear completely. This results in yellow teeth, cavities and tooth decay as well as painful sensations when hot and cold foods are eaten.
Needless to say, that’s not something you want - especially since grinding your teeth can be a symptom of sleep apnea, which is potentially lethal. That’s why our clinic offers various dental guards that will stop you from grinding and damaging your teeth - and make sure you breathe properly throughout the whole night, even if you suffer from sleep apnea.
Professional Dental Guards
Sports and casual games often end in missing or chipped teeth and damaged gums. Pro athletes wear mouth guards for a reason: there are just too many ways to lose your teeth, no matter what sport you’re playing. This is doubly true if you’ve already damaged your enamel by grinding your teeth at night - or have a bad bite.
The best kind of dental guard you can get is a custom-fitted one made in a clinic like ours. It will protect you from impact damage and stop grinding teeth without blocking your breathing.
Teeth grinding isn’t just an annoying habit that destroys the white enamel on your teeth. It’s also a possible symptom of sleep apnea; a condition that can be lethal if left untreated. That’s why it’s important that you get a night guard that allows for unrestricted breathing if you suffer from teeth grinding.
Fortunately, our clinic offers customized, fitted guards just like that. They last for a long time, meaning you save money when compared to store-bought alternatives. To find out more about our guards, and the other products on this page, call us at (770) 277-5588 !
