Safe comfortable mouth guards!
If you’re doing any sort of contact sport, having a mouth guard is really important because you never know when you’re going to get clocked in the face and you’re missing part of your front tooth. It’s not a fun situation. And sometimes we can fix that with a filling or a crown, but other times, if there’s extensive damage, you might need implants. So I highly recommend having a mouth guard to protect your front teeth, your smile, to make sure you’re not coming in to see me too often. A mouth guard can also help if you clench or grind your teeth. A lot of people that clench or grind their teeth, they’ll cause themselves a lot of pain in their joints and muscles around their head and neck, and also tooth pain, as well, can arise from grinding your teeth. In addition to that, people that grind their teeth can start to get cracks in their teeth, and when we get cracks in our teeth, it’s really not good because, over time, the tooth could split, and you can get a big chip off your tooth, and in some cases the tooth may need to even be extracted. So if you grind or clench your teeth, I highly recommend wearing a night guard.
