Did you know that you could be grinding your teeth while you sleep and not even be aware of it? It’s true. Many of our patients are slowly causing dental damage to their pearly whites night after night.
The good news we have for you is that Dr. LoCascio can examine your teeth for signs of bruxism, or teeth grinding, during your routine checkup, then fit you with a professionally made mouthguard to eliminate your nighttime grinding routine.
Your custom mouthguard will sit comfortably in your mouth during sleep, keeping your teeth apart so you can protect your tooth enamel. If caught in time, we can prevent dental damage and the expense involved with repairing it.
Do you have athletes in your family? If so, you need to pay close attention to this statistic: The American Dental Association says that athletes who don’t wear mouth protection are 60 times more likely to suffer a dental injury than those athletes who do wear some sort of protection. That’s a lot of dental damage that can easily be prevented through the use of a professionally made mouthguard.
Sure, you can go to a sporting goods store and pick up a “boil-and-bite” mouthguard off the shelf. However, our custom-fit mouthguards will give superior performance to one you get out of a box.
A sturdy mouthguard fitted specifically to you or your child’s mouth will provide better protection, fit more comfortably, and last longer. It’s worth the investment when you consider the alternative – potential emergency dental visits and the pain that goes along with them. Take some time now to get the protection your valuable teeth deserve!
