Protect Your Teeth with Custom Mouth Guards in Glen Allen
Dr. Gibberman’s dental office, located in Glen Allen, offers custom occlusal and sports mouth guards for local patients who are concerned about protecting their teeth. Mouth guards are commonly used to help patients with bruxism, which is the grinding or clenching of teeth while sleeping. Nighttime teeth grinding can wear down teeth and dental restorations. If you have expensive crowns or dental implants and tend to grind your teeth while sleeping, you could inadvertently damage your dental work. Protect your investment and your oral health with a custom mouth guard from our dental office.
How a Custom Mouth Guard Can Help You
In addition to protecting your teeth and dental work from wear, mouth guards can help alleviate jaw pain and headaches by holding your jaw in correct alignment. This can also provide you with a better night's sleep.
Mouth guards are also important for athletes who participate in contact sports to protect against sudden impact and a potential dental emergency. Dr. Gibberman recommends custom sports guards for any activity where mouth injuries are possible. Even playing a pick-up game of basketball in the backyard or playing softball with your coworkers after work could result in a knocked out tooth if you don't wear a sports mouth guard. The custom mouth guards from our Glen Allen dental office are:
• More comfortable than boil-and-bite mouth guards
• Made to fit the unique shape of your mouth
• More protective, as they are in the proper position should impact occur
Getting custom mouth guards is a simple process. This non-invasive service is focused on protecting and saving your teeth. In cases with underlying issues, such as joint-related jaw pain, mouth guards are used to alleviate discomfort and improve the problem. Dr. Gibberman takes a comprehensive approach to ensure that the cause is identified and addressed. This typically involves a thorough examination and digital imaging. Once it has been determined that a custom mouth guard is the appropriate form of treatment, Dr. Gibberman will take an impression of your teeth and create your unique mouth guard.
