A mouth guard may be necessary if you grind your teeth, or if your child needs to protect his or her teeth for various types of sports. While commercial mouth guards are available, these can be uncomfortable. A custom mouth guard is created by taking an impression of your teeth and gums, so it fits your (or your child’s) mouth perfectly, with a much higher level of comfort.
Grinding your teeth (called bruxism) will damage them and can lead to serious dental problems in the future. If you or your child have this issue, it is very important that you get a custom mouth guard to wear during sleeping hours to protect the surface of the teeth from cracks, wear, and potential breakage.
The primary reasons for considering an All-on-4 are obvious. You will regain the functional benefits of natural teeth and improve your general oral health. You will regain a healthy-looking, natural smile and the confidence and ease with others that comes with that.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. It has been estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. A single tooth implant offers you the opportunity to replace a missing tooth with a permanent, fixed tooth that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to care for your implant in the same way as you care for your other teeth.
