Sometimes, prevention is the best course of treatment. Avoid costly emergency visits by getting a custom mouthguard constructed for the sporting field. The last thing we want to see is a great match ruined by an unforeseen accident resulting in dental trauma.
For night time tooth grinding and clenching we also construct appliances to prevent uncontrolled subconscious damage to your teeth. The muscles surrounding your jaw are incredibly powerful and are able to exert a tremendous amount of force onto the teeth. People who grind and clench their teeth are at a much higher risk of cracking, damaging and wearing down their teeth. Prevent costly rebuilds by having a nighttime splint fitted, the splint will not only lift and separate the teeth from meeting but also train your muscles to relax.
