In order to ensure that your teeth and gums are properly cared for, you will need to make sure that you assess all forms of dental damage that can arise. Oftentimes, oral appliances and devices can be used to prevent the damage from ever occurring in the first place. Try using mouth guards to help limit the effects of oral accidents and injuries on your teeth.

Mouth guards come in two main forms, known as stock guards and customizable mouth guards. Whereas stock guards are designed to fit into your mouth and come preformed and ready-to-wear, they are not contoured to your dental profile and may be uncomfortable. Instead, you can try using one specifically crafted for your teeth, including those that you have to bite into, such as a customized one designed by our dentists. Once you have the perfect set of mouth guards for your teeth and gums, you should be sure to care for them properly.

To keep your mouth guard safe, make sure that it is constantly cleaned and sanitized to help prevent contamination. Furthermore, if it should ever warp or crack, visit our dentists for the appropriate restorations or replacement.
