The Benefits Of Personalized Guards

There are generic tools that can be bought in-store to protect your teeth against potential injuries. Unfortunately, though, these may not fit every patient’s needs. It is important to have one that fits precisely to your oral cavity to have the most security. At your next appointment, you can talk to your team about having a custom-made sport guard for you. The dentist will take an impression of your smile and have one made specifically to fit your smile. These can be used to protect your teeth against injuries and can keep your dental work safe. For instance, if you have had restorations such as dental crowns done, this can keep them out of harm’s way.

Caring For You In An Emergency

Even with a mouthguard, accidents can still happen. Our team is equipped to manage emergencies so you can get swift care if you harm your smile. Common injuries that may happen during sports could be chipping a tooth, knocking one out, or harming one of your restorations. If this happens, make sure that you stay calm and call your dentist as soon as you can. It is important to get the area examined as soon as possible to prevent the harm from worsening. If the team is unable to get you in during the same day, they will instruct you on how to care for it in the meantime. You may be able to apply gauze, a cold compress, or take over-the-counter pain reducers to feel more comfortable.

We Offer Sleep Appliances, Too

Do you often experience symptoms such as waking up periodically throughout the night, feeling fatigued, or feeling irritable? These could be signs of obstructive sleep apnea. This disorder can interrupt your sleep and can harm your overall well-being. Your dentist may be able to assess your symptoms, diagnose the problem, and produce a helpful treatment plan. In many cases, an oral appliance may be able to help relieve your symptoms. This tool helps keep your airways open while you rest. It will be personalized to fit your specific needs and is often more comfortable than a CPAP machine, which is the traditional solution for sleep apnea.
