Do you clench and grind your teeth while you sleep? Do you play high-contact sports? If so, you may need a night guard or mouth guard. A mouth guard is a protective device that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to your mouth and jaw joints. Sometimes, damage to your teeth can happen in an instant, such as when you’re playing a sport. However, if you grind your teeth at night, you will be causing gradual damage that is hard to detect until it is too late. Our team at Nanoose Bay Dental Centre can fit you with a special mouth guard or night guard depending on your needs. Give us a call today if your suspect that you may need a mouth guard.
