Sports Guards and TMJ appliances
Do you regularly experience headaches or jaw aches? Have you been told you grind your teeth at night? If so, you might be suffering from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder and an appliance might be the solution to your symptoms.
While there are many ways to damage and wear your teeth, athletic injuries and grinding are very common. At Fernbank Dental, we can create custom appliances to protect your teeth or your child’s teeth from harm.
TMJ Appliances (night guards)
In addition to damaged teeth, clenching or grinding your teeth may leave you with headaches, ear-aches and jaw pain. Although there are many causes for these symptoms, a night guard is often the solution. Ask your dentist to assess your jaw to see if a night guard is right for you!
Sports Mouth Guards
Sports are a great way to keep you and your children active. They are also a very common way to injure your teeth. If you or your children are involved in sports, you must wear a guard to protect your teeth from possible trauma. At Fernbank Dental Centre, we will make sports guards that will give you the protection you need that is specific to your mouth. Custom guards are cost effective and are a lot more comfortable and less bulky than the ones that are off-the-shelf.
