Mouthguards and Nightguards
If you or any of your family members participate in contact sports activities, getting a mouthguard should be at the top of your to-do list. It’s important to keep your teeth protected against the possible injuries and impacts of contact sports. We at Woodlawn Dental would like to remind all patients that mouthguards are a necessary precaution for your long-term dental health and protection, should your teeth be at risk of injury.
Engaging in sports and activities while unprotected can lead to your teeth being knocked out or chipped. Don’t risk your teeth nor your children’s! Get a mouthguard from Woodlawn Dental to protect your long-term smile in one appointment!
Bruxism and teeth grinding tendencies can cause a great deal of damage to your oral health if you don’t take protective measures. Clenching your teeth while you sleep often goes undetected until a spouse notices, so it’s important to book regular dental checkups in order to detect any oral issues as early as possible.
Some signs of Bruxism include:
- Sensitive teeth
- Jaw pain
- Passive teeth grinding
- Flattened tooth tips
Typically, we recommend the use of nightguards for Bruxism treatment and reduction. Nightguards protect your mouth, jaw, and teeth from your own natural tendencies. In some severe cases, teeth clenching can lead to dental problems such as chipped teeth, sensitivity to hot and cold foods, and other bothersome complications.
Having your own nightguard will protect your smile for years to come, as nightguards are a key part of treatment and preventative oral care. Get your nightguard at our Woodlawn Dental office, or book an appointment today if you feel that teeth grinding has caused any discomfort or damage to your oral structure.
