Teeth grinding can lead to jaw disorders and chipped teeth. A night guard may be recommended by your dentist to prevent damage to your teeth while you sleep.
Retainers maintain teeth alignment after orthodontic treatment. They come in two forms: a clear plastic aligner or a metal retainer attached to a plastic plate that rests against the roof of the mouth.
Sports Mouth Guards
Wearing a mouth guard during contact sports can prevent tooth loss or displacement. While boil and bite mouth guards are available, custom-made guards provide the best fit and protection.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when overly relaxed muscles around the mouth area obstruct breathing. Your dentist may recommend using dental appliances or a mouth guard to address this issue.
