At Family Holistic Dentistry we do custom Night Guards and Orthotic devices without BPA.
A Night Guard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, TMJ,arches, lips and gums. A mouth guard is most often used to prevent injury in contact sports, as a treatment for Bruxism (grinding/clenching), or as part of certain dental procedures. Grinding can injure teeth, as it can cause fractures and local pain in the mouth or jaw, and may contribute to Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ). Having a mouth guard helps prevent major issues such as fractures and root canals, among others.
The Orthotic, on the other hand, places the teeth in a position where the jaw muscles and the TMJ are comfortable and relaxed.
An Orthotic is designed to stop grinding and, therefore, many symptoms associated with TMJ are decreased or go away altogether. While some think the only symptoms of the condition are popping in the jaw and jaw pain, it may manifest in various ways, including keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep, ringing in your ears (tinnitus),feeling your ears full ,chronic headaches or migraines are also commonly misdiagnosed symptoms.
If you suspect that you are grinding , have unexpected fillings or teeth fractures, symptoms in your ears , etc, come and talk to us for an evaluation. We help patients find their perfect fit.
