Protect Your Teeth All Day
In addition to protecting your mouth from tooth decay, protecting your teeth from injury is an important part of dental care. If you suffer from excessive teeth clenching or nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism), your teeth can become worn over time due to increased pressure. This puts a strain on your teeth and jaw muscles and could cause serious damage if not corrected.
If you live an active lifestyle, sustaining a sports injury is a common concern. Chipped, broken, severely damaged, or missing teeth can result from many types of sports. However, rather than forgo the sports and activities you love or worry about nighttime habits, Dr. Steinbach and Dr. Van Gorden have a simple solution—mouthguards and nightguards.
Mouthguards and nightguards are types of oral appliances designed to cover your teeth and gums. Oral appliances are simple-to-use, easy to maintain, and can be used to treat sleep apnea, protect your mouth during sports, and help relieve bruxism. At Elevate Dental Wellness, we provide personalized mouthguards and nightguards to provide you with tooth protection day or night.
