Nightguards & Mouthguards
Great Falls, MT
Our mouths and teeth are very sensitive, and dental experts like us will tell you that they require protection every day. Most people think that the teeth only require caring while we are awake, but we, at River's Edge Dental, believe that is not the case. Even while sleeping, people need to protect their mouths and teeth from any involuntary actions. Luckily, there are ways to prevent any major issues caused by these uncontrollable actions. Some people tend to grind their teeth while they are sleeping. This involuntary action has drastic effects on the mouth, most particularly on the teeth of a patient. Before it gets any worse, cases like these need to be checked out by dentists like us as soon as possible.
Teeth Grinding and Mouth Guards
Teeth grinding is a very common condition, and in some cases, people grind their teeth out of habit even when they are wide awake. Teeth grinding is a bad habit that people must remove from their system. There is no actual cause of teeth grinding, but research has revealed that people often do it to relieve themselves of stress and anxiety. While it may be pleasurable for some, the adverse effects of teeth grinding are far from fun, and it often includes loose or fractured teeth. In some cases, people lose a vast majority of their teeth to it.
Luckily, there are ways to help people from the effects of this habit. We usually recommend a night and mouth guard for people who cannot seem to stop themselves from teeth grinding. Through this breakthrough medical appliance, people are saved from the long-term effects of the habit they cannot keep themselves from doing.
Our Process of Giving the Most Comprehensive Treatment to Teeth Grinding Patients
When a patient comes to us looking for help, we begin the process by first assessing whether he or she requires a night and mouth guard. If it is required, we will measure the mouth and create an exact mold of the mouth, to create a perfectly fitting mouth guard. Guards that do not fit very well are uncomfortable for people, which often means they will not wear it properly. That is why what they put in their mouths are always tailor-made for them.
What we provide is comfortable mouth and night guards as well. We strive always to make sure that our patients feel natural even if they have the mouth guard on. After all, one of the duties of being a dentist is making sure that our patients are happy both in and out of our office.
Teeth grinding may already be a force of habit for some, but it is not something that we should take lightly. At River's Edge Dental, we provide our patients with the best solutions to their teeth grinding problems so that they do not have to worry about any loose or fractured teeth. The guards we can provide are both durable and a perfect fit for any individual, and we make sure it feels like they are wearing nothing at all. Give us a call at (406) 315-5882 to find out more.
