Sports injuries aren’t just related to muscles
Some of the most common sources of dental trauma are sports injuries and nighttime grinding. At The Old Villa Dental Center, we create custom appliances that protect your teeth from both of these sources of damage. They reduce your chances of chipping, damaging, or losing a tooth.
If you often wake up with headaches or jaw pain, you could be grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw while you sleep. This is called “bruxism,” and it can really be damaging to your teeth — and leave your mouth sore. Ask us about creating a custom bite appliance to prevent you from doing further harm to your smile.
If you play contact sports, you should be wearing a sports guard. Your teeth need to be protected from impacts and trauma, and a custom sports guard will provide the cushioning and protection they need.
