Do you grind or clench your teeth at night? If so, we strongly suggest coming into Powell Boulevard Dental and meeting with Dr. Denise M. Walthour as soon as you can to treat the unhealthy habit.
We are proud to offer a night guard in Portland, Oregon, to help you protect your teeth at night and restore your oral health. When you come into our office, your dentist will examine your teeth and see how much damage the grinding has made to your teeth. Then, she will create a night guard that will fit perfectly inside your mouth that will keep your teeth from touching at night.
We also strongly recommend purchasing a mouth guard if you participate in contact sports. Anything can happen while you are playing sports, and we do not want an injury to your teeth to be one of them. So, in order to prevent any accidents, we ask that you wear a mouth guard. These appliances will fit over your teeth and protect them when strong forces hit them. If you wear a mouth guard, it will save you time and money you will later spend at the dental office.
If you wish to learn more about night guards or mouth guards, we invite you to give us a call!
