Here’s a little known fact: the most common ways to damage your teeth are through sports and sleep. At Gateway Dental, we are happy to create custom appliances to protect your teeth from athletic injuries and night-time grinding.
If you play sports, it’s important that you wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth from becoming damaged. We can create custom sports guards to give you the protective cushioning you need.
Do you regularly wake up with headaches or jaw pain? These could be symptoms of “bruxism”, meaning you grind your teeth or clench your jaw in your sleep. Bruxism can be highly damaging to your teeth, so it’s a good idea to ask your dentist about custom bite appliances to protect you from further harm.
