You may not be aware of it, but you could be causing damage to your teeth enamel while you sleep. Many of our patients grind their teeth (also known as bruxism) in their sleep without knowing it.
Over time, bruxism can not only damage your teeth enamel and make you a higher risk for developing cavities and disease, but it can also cause issues with your bite. At this point, restorative or cosmetic dental treatment may be needed to correct the damage.
You can avoid teeth damage, however, with a custom-fit mouthguard from Highland Advanced Dental Care. Dr. LoCascio has been keeping his patients smiling for nearly four decades and he can do the same for you.
Schedule your next regular checkup soon so that we can check for signs of teeth grinding. If he sees any, Dr. LoCascio will have a professional mouthguard made that will keep your teeth apart while you sleep. It will fit comfortably and outperform any store-bought appliance because it will be made just for your mouth.
Highland Advanced Dental Care also makes mouthguards for sports and athletic activities. The American Dental Association (ADA) says that an athlete is 60 times more likely to suffer dental damage if they’re not wearing a mouthguard than if they are. That’s a lot of damaged smiles out there!
If you or your child plays sports, then you owe it to yourself to get the best protection possible. Our professional mouthguards will provide more protection, fit better, and last longer than boil-and-bite mouthguards you can find on the shelf. Plus, we can make a custom mouthguard for just about any sport out there.
Our Holly mouthguards are the solution you’ve been looking for in dental protection! Call us today at 248-329-3552 to schedule your appointment.
