Our teeth can be injured in two fairly commons ways. Playing sports can injure teeth in an instant. Grinding our teeth and clenching our jaw while we sleep can damage them so slowly that it doesn’t seem serious.
Dr. Maria Ana Marcelo can fit you with a custom mouth guard or bite appliance to protect your teeth from either of those types of damage.
When you clench or grind your teeth when you sleep, it’s called “bruxism.” This can cause damaged fillings, chipped teeth and painful headaches. We can make a special bite appliance to protect your teeth from this damage while you sleep.
Athletes know that when you play sports, there is always a chance of injury. This is very true for your teeth. Contact sports such as rugby, hockey and football leave your teeth especially vulnerable to injury. Our team can fit your with a sports guard to protect your teeth during physical activity.
If you grind your teeth or play sports, contact the practice of Dr. Maria Ana Marcelo today to learn more about how a custom mouth guard or bite appliance could help you protect your teeth.
