Sports Guards and Night (bite) Appliances in Calgary
It’s important to protect your teeth from injury. Although your teeth may seem strong, they’re vulnerable to damage from impacts or grinding. We provide custom night appliances and sports guards to keep your teeth safe.
Night, or bite, appliances are devices that prevent nighttime grinding. Grinding, also called bruxism, can slowly wear down the enamel on your teeth, and it can also push them out of alignment. By holding your jaws firmly in the correct position, the bite appliance prevents you from grinding your teeth while you sleep. The appliances are designed to fit the contours of your mouth comfortably, so they don’t interfere with your sleep.
Impact to your mouth or head can cause serious injury to your teeth. Damage can come from a direct impact, but it can also occur indirectly if you fall down or collide with another player. Sports guards absorb the impact and protect your teeth from being injured.
