Dental Guards and Appliances Near You
The most common causes of tooth injury include bruxism (teeth grinding at night) and sports-related injuries. Mouthguards and appliances help protect your teeth from teeth grinding at night as well as from contact sports. At Wharncliffe Family Dental, we offer a couple of different guards and appliances to protect your teeth from the harmful effects of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) or impact during sports.
Bruxism is a condition that causes patients to clench or grind their teeth at night. The long-term effects of bruxism include problems in the jaw joint and also severe tooth damage. When receiving night guards in North London, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to fabricate custom guards, so they fit securely over your teeth. The purpose of night guards is to have a barrier that prevents your teeth from touching, which will stop the grinding of your teeth.
Sports Mouth Guards
Sports guards are an essential part of protecting your teeth from injuries. When wearing a sports mouth guard, it acts as a cushion and protects your teeth from impact. Sports mouth guards protect your teeth, lips, jaw, and tongue from injuries. Although there are many sports mouthguards on the market, receiving a custom sports mouthguard near you ensures that the mouth guard fits securely over your teeth and also provides durable protection.
