Mouth guards are a great way to protect your teeth from damage caused due to injury or clenching and grinding. At Comfort Dental Care, we offer custom-made dental mouth guards to protect your smile.
A custom dental mouth guard created in a dental laboratory is a great way to provide protection to your teeth. Trauma to the teeth, lips, cheeks and jaw can happen during contact sports and activities. Grinding your teeth while you sleep can cause jaw pain, headaches, shorter teeth and even tooth fractures. Professionally created mouth guards are made of comfortable, yet sturdy material and can easily slide over your teeth to provide a snug fit. They protect the teeth and mouth from impact for those who play sports, and they prevent contact between the top and bottom teeth to eliminate the side effects of grinding during sleep.
Most people who suffer from bruxism don’t even know they are causing harm to their teeth as they sleep. You may experience sensitivity and headaches or jaw pain despite having no cavities or other problems. Bruxism is not uncommon, and the condition may range from mild and sporadic to frequent. It may increase when you are under the effect of stress.
The process of making your mouth guard begins with taking an impression of your teeth and sending it to a dental laboratory. Once the mouth guard is ready, we will check to ensure it fits properly and feels comfortable inside the mouth, and you will then be ready to protect your teeth from damage at night or during play.
