Stop Teeth Grinding to End Your Jaw Pain
Believe it or not, you may be your biggest risk to your teeth. You could be among the millions of people who grind or clench their teeth together. Many people do this in their sleep without realizing that it’s happening.
To protect your teeth, we can design a custom mouthguard or NTI splint for you to wear at night. With this night guard, you have something between your top and bottom rows of teeth so you can’t grind away your enamel.
By wearing this, you can:
- Save your teeth from damage that could lead to cracks and breaks
- Reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease
- Spare you from the symptoms of TMJ disorders such as jaw, face, and neck pains, headaches and earaches, and jaw stiffness
Keep Your Winning Smile When the Game Is Over
Teeth grinding is just one way your teeth can be harmed. Playing high-impact sports can take a toll on your smile as well if you don’t take precautions before you take the field. In fact, athletes who don’t wear sports mouthguards are significantly more likely to suffer dental injuries than athletes who do.
You and your loved ones should protect your teeth anytime you gear up for a recreational league or your kids run onto the court. You don’t have to get paid to play to risk an elbow to the jaw or a hit to the teeth with a basketball. If you run, jump, throw or catch something, or have any physical contact, then you should have a mouthguard when you play or practice.
The best protection comes from the right kind of mouthguards. In Sand Springs, you can get this kind of protection at LakeCrest Dental. Just call 918-205-4386 to find out how you can stop grinding your teeth or how you can get a personalized athletic mouthguard.
