Night Guards for Teeth Grinding

A recent report states that close to 20% of adults currently suffer from the negative effects of grinding and clenching their teeth, which is also known as bruxing. The major reason for this grinding and bruxing is stress. The negative effect of excessive clenching and grinding is not just that it will cause excessive wear on your teeth, but also that it can cause facial and neck muscle soreness, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) problems, arthritis pain, and dysfunction. Many of our patients also complain of symptoms of insomnia, migraines, and loss of appetite. These symptoms all are related to night grinding and clenching of their teeth. Our custom fit night guards help alleviate these symptoms by preventing the grinding and clenching that is causing the symptoms and the damage. Our Downriver dental office experts will be able to quickly fit you with a night guard to alleviate this problem. They will mold a plastic mouthpiece that comfortably fits over your upper and lower teeth which helps eliminate the damaging effects of clenching or grinding your teeth.

Sports Guards

Athletes are extremely susceptible to concussions, and teeth damage. Wearing a mouth guard custom fit by your dentist while playing sports can reduce that risk dramatically. Sports guards can help prevent damage to lips, gums, and the soft tissue of the mouth. Wearing a mouth guard can also prevent tooth cracking, chipping, nerve damage, and even getting teeth completely knocked out. Sports mouth guards can be fitted with braces and can prevent damage that can be caused by braces.
