You wear a seatbelt when you drive a vehicle, and a helmet when you ride a bike, so don’t forget to treat your teeth with the same level of caution.
Our teeth can be damaged in the blink of an eye, or very slowly over a long period of time – and the results can be traumatic.
At Avenue Dental, we can make customized appliances to protect your teeth from different types of damage.
If you play a sport with lots of physical contact – like hockey, rugby, or football – your teeth are in constant danger of being chipped, cracked, or even completely knocked out. A sports guard will cushion your teeth from any impact.
If you clench or grind your teeth at night, you’re breaking down the enamel of your teeth and damaging your jaw – and probably giving yourself a terrible headache, too. We can create a custom bite appliance – protecting your teeth from any clenching or grinding friction.
Both of these appliances are created to fit your teeth perfectly, they’ll feel like a comfortable part of your mouth, and – most importantly – they’ll help protect your teeth from harm.
