You probably try to protect your smile by brushing, flossing, and getting regular general dental care. However, you may need to do more than protect your teeth against tooth decay and cavities. Mouthguards in Broken Arrow will:
- Protect your teeth from injuries and accidents
- Prevent wear and tear to your enamel
- Stop the pains that can come from teeth grinding
We want to help you protect your teeth from harm. To get one of our custom mouthguards, call 918-205-4492 to plan a visit at LakeCrest Dental.
Win in Your Efforts to Keep Smiling With Our Sports Guards
If your sport involves running, jumping, physical contact, or objects flying through the air, then you should take steps to protect your teeth when you take the court or the field.
Wearing a mouthguard makes you much less likely to suffer a dental injury. And the best protection comes from a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard, which we can make for you at our office. A custom-made mouthguard is smaller than the boil-and-bite kinds you can find in stores. The custom fit is more comfortable and less likely to interfere with breathing, drinking water, and talking to teammates, too.
Our Teeth Grinding Treatment Can Save Your Teeth & Relieve Pain
Sports aren’t the only reason to protect your smile. Sometimes the biggest risk is yourself. Millions of Americans grind their teeth together in their sleep. This can:
- Wear down the enamel of your teeth
- Increase your risk of tooth decay and gum infections
- Potentially lead to a TMJ disorder
- Result in jaw, face, and neck pains
- Cause frequent headaches or earaches
To help save your teeth, we can create a different kind of mouthguard or NTI splint that you can wear while you are asleep. This creates a barrier between your top and bottom teeth to stop grinding. It also can alleviate the pressure that leads to the various pains you may feel in and around your jaw.
Before you get in the game or get ready for bed, make sure you are taking steps to protect your smile.
