Mouth guards should be considered an essential piece of equipment for those who play contact sports. These devices are effective for preventing damage to the teeth and mouth. Even just one injury can produce severe oral consequences. This can often be prevented by wearing a custom-made mouth guard from Skinner & Ossakow D.D.S. and Associates in Centerville.
At Skinner & Ossakow D.D.S & Associates, we take pride in providing our patients with top-quality, custom-made mouth guards. This allows for greater comfort and protection. Our mouth guards are made from high-quality materials that are both durable and comfortable.
We provide mouth guards for both children and adults. Some of the issues that can be prevented by wearing a mouth guard include:
During your first visit, we 'll take impressions of your teeth. We'll then send your impressions to a dental laboratory where your mouth guard will be created. Once it is ready, you will come back for your second visit, and we'll make the fit is perfect and comfortable.
Our team also provides night guards for our patients who suffer from bruxism. Bruxism is a common condition which causes a patient to clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. Bruxism can lead to worn teeth, jaw damage, teeth fractures, headaches, jaw pain and other oral injuries. By wearing a night guard while you sleep, these problems can be largely prevented.
Wearing a well-fitted, high-quality mouth guard can help prevent pain and injury. We encourage all our patients who participate in contact activities or who clench and grind their teeth during sleep to ask us about our custom-made mouth guards.
