Accidents and dental emergencies can happen at any time, and we are here and always ready to help. You can save valuable time and unnecessary stress by communicating any risks, hobbies, or sports you may be engaging in with your dentist so we can best equip you with the gear and knowledge you need to stay safe. Knowing exactly what to do in an accident or sports injury can be the difference between losing and saving a tooth.
It can be beneficial to use a guard, or covering, to protect your teeth from grinding while sleeping. Similar to how a mouthguard protects teeth during sports, this layer prevents damage to the teeth that can occur naturally.
There are a wide variety of different types of mouthguards, ranging from pre-formed pieces to ones that are custom fitted to your teeth and jaws. Some of these can even be formed at home through a boil-and-bite process.
