If you are an athlete, it is important to protect your teeth during both practices and games. Dental trauma occurs in 25% of children ages 7-14. While some of that injury is accidental, many injuries are sports related. A mouth guard can help protect your teeth from being broken, displaced, or damaged and requiring years of costly maintenance and restoration. Custom-fitted mouth guards are easier to wear and offer you the best protection for your smile. We can make that for you right here in our Avon office!
Occlusal Bite Guards & Custom Mouth Guards
Do you grind or clench your teeth? Are you waking up with headaches or a sore jaw? A night guard or occlusal appliance may be recommended to you to help protect your teeth from wearing down prematurely or to improve chronic headaches. At your next appointment, ask us if we think you would benefit from one of these.
If Dr. Moen feels that you would benefit from a preventive appliance, we can make a custom-fit guard to prevent you from grinding or clenching your teeth. We will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth and an impression of your bite so that the dental lab knows how your teeth fit together. We will send these models and bite impression to a dental laboratory where they will custom fabricate a guard using specialized materials.
