Sports Guards and Bite Appliances in Lake Orion
There are two common ways we can cause damage to our teeth: grinding /clenching and playing sports. Both types of damage are preventable with the right kind of help. We provide sports guards and bite splints that will help you keep your teeth safe.
Bruxism is what dentists call the act of clenching or grinding your teeth while you sleep. It can result in chipped teeth, damaged fillings, painful headaches, and can even loosen your teeth. We can fit you with a special night guard that will protect your teeth from breaking down while you get a good night’s rest.
Playing a sport is a great way to stay healthy, but it can leave your teeth vulnerable to damage -- particularly in contact sports such as hockey and football. We can fit athletes with sports guards to protect their teeth during physical activity. We understand that you need to be able to protect your teeth without impeding your game.
