Dental Guards and Appliances
Our teeth are very resilient, as they withstand daily chewing, grinding, and impacts from external forces such as when you’re playing sports. But they’re not indestructible. When your teeth require additional protection, come into our local dental clinic today. We offer several customized dental guards and appliances to help preserve your smile.
Grinding and clenching your teeth is a nighttime habit that, if left unaddressed, can cause your teeth to weaken over time. It may also cause you teeth to become cracked or chipped. As a result, dentists often recommend night guards to amend this problem and help you sleep better.
Retainers are often recommended to patients following orthodontic treatment. These devices help ensure that your teeth remain in place. Retainers can come in the form of a clear tray that you slip in before you go to bed, or they can be a permanent metal bar that’s installed behind your teeth.
