We understand that accidents happen, and sometimes teeth become injured or damaged. That’s why we offer emergency dental care. But it’s important to protect our teeth as much as possible -- specifically by wearing a custom bite guard or appliance.
We make a variety of comfortable, custom guards and appliances that can help protect your teeth from split-second sports emergencies or slow damage over time. There are two primary types of damage we do to our teeth:
"Bruxism" is when you clench or grind your teeth while your sleep. Bruxism can cause chipped teeth, damaged fillings, painful headaches, and it can even loosen your teeth. Our team can fit you with a comfy night guard that will protect your teeth from being damaged while you sleep.
Sports often leave your teeth vulnerable — particularly contact sports such as rugby, hockey and football. We can fit athletes with sports guards to protect their teeth from injury during physical activity. You’ll still be able to speak comfortably, of course, and communicate with the rest of your team. Contact Aponia Dental today to discuss a custom sports guard or bite appliance to protect your teeth from harm.
