Keeping your teeth safe
There are two common ways in which we damage our teeth: grinding and clenching, and playing sports. Both types of damage can be prevented, or at least lessened, with the help of a guard or bite appliance.
When you clench or grind your teeth while your sleep, dentists refer to this as "bruxism." It can result in chipped teeth, damaged fillings, painful headaches, and can even loosen your teeth. We can fit you with a special night guard that will protect your teeth from breaking down while you sleep.
Playing a sport is wonderful for your health, but can leave your teeth vulnerable to damage; particularly in contact sports such as hockey and football. We can fit athletes with sports guards to protect their teeth during physical activity.
