Mouth are an excellent way protect your teeth from damage caused due to injury or clenching and grinding. At Cornerstone Dental Associates in Crossroads, TX, we offer custom dental mouth guards to protect your teeth.
Grinding your teeth could cause jaw pain, headaches, shorter teeth and even tooth fractures. Trauma to the teeth can also be caused while playing contact sports. A custom dental mouth guard created in a dental laboratory is great to provide protection to your teeth. Professionally created mouthguards are made of soft, yet sturdy material and can easily slide over each jaw to provide a snug fit. It prevents contact between the jaws to eliminate the side effects of grinding and also protects the teeth from impact for those who play sports.
Most people who suffer from bruxism don’t even know they are causing harm to their teeth as they sleep. The person sleeping next to you may be able to spot the problem. You may experience sensitivity and headaches or jaw pain despite having no cavities or other problems. Bruxism is not uncommon, and the condition may range from mild and sporadic to frequent. It may increase when you are under the effect of stress.
The process of making your mouth guard begins with taking an impression of your teeth and sending it to a dental lab to make your guard. Once the mouth guard is ready, we will check if it fits properly and feels comfortable inside the mouth and you will then be ready to protect your teeth from damage at night or during play.
