There are two common ways in which we harm our teeth: playing sports, and grinding and clenching while we sleep. Sometimes our teeth are injured in an instant, but they can also be damaged so slowly that we don’t realize until it’s serious.
At Jackson Square Dental Centre, we can fit you for custom guards and bite appliances that help to protect your teeth from both types of damage.
"Bruxism" is when you clench or grind your teeth while your sleep. Bruxism can cause chipped teeth, damaged fillings, painful headaches, and it can even loosen your teeth. Our team can fit you with a special night guard that will protect your teeth from being damaged while you sleep.
Sports often leave your teeth vulnerable — particularly contact sports such as rugby, hockey and football. We can fit athletes with sports guards to protect their teeth from injury during physical activity.
Contact Jackson Square Dental Centre today to discuss a custom guard or bite appliance to protect your teeth from harms.
