Nightguards for TMJ/Bruxism Therapy
Do you ever wake up with headaches or jaw pain? Do your teeth look like they’ve been worn down? If so, then you may be suffering from a condition called bruxism, which involves unconscious jaw clenching and teeth grinding while you sleep. As many as 1 in 3 people are currently dealing with this problem, and it can often lead to broken teeth and a strained jaw joint (TMJ). However, with a nightguard, we can easily keep a patient’s smile protected. It is a small, custom-made mouthguard that is only worn to bed, and it works by placing a physical barrier between the teeth to prevent them from grinding together during the night.
Periodontal therapy is a collection of treatments we use to battle periodontal disease, which you probably know better as gum disease. It’s one of the biggest threats to oral health today, but under our care, we’ll make sure this global problem is never an issue for your smile.
According to the American Dental Association, nearly 40% of all dental injuries actually stem from sports, and most of them could be easily prevented by wearing a protective mouthguard. If you or your child regularly participate in sports, let Marvel Dental keep your smile safe by providing a custom-made mouthguard. Unlike store bought guards, ours are designed to fit each individual’s teeth so that they are comfortable, strong, and durable so athletes can keep their mind on the game and stay protected at the same time.
