The two most common ways people injure their teeth is through sports and by grinding or clenching them at night while they sleep. Having a properly fitting guard or bite appliance will help ensure the safety of your teeth and lessen the damage done to them.
Bite appliances are recommended if you experience grinding or clenching of the teeth, also known as “bruxism”, while you sleep. Bruxism can cause chipped teeth, damaged fillings, painful headaches and can even lead to tooth loss. Wearing a guard while you sleep can help prevent damage and subsequent pain.
Sport guards are vital to ensuring the safety of your teeth while enjoying your favourite sport. It only takes an instant to damage your smile, but we can properly fit athletes with sports guards that will help prevent injury.
