Mouthguards in Tawas City, MI

Protect Your Smile

Mouth guards and bite appliances are available to reduce wear or damage to teeth.

The two most common ways people damage their teeth are from sports injuries and bruxism (teeth grinding). Sports injuries can happen in a split second, and for people with bruxism, the damage occurs over time, cracking fillings, chipping enamel, and wearing down and loosening teeth.

Luckily, there are ways to combat this damage. For patients who play sports or participate in other physical activities, custom-made sports guards are a great investment. Made of flexible plastic and specially fitted to your teeth, a sports guard acts as a shock absorber, taking the force of any sudden injury to your mouth and protecting your teeth, jaw, and head.

Bite appliances are also made from flexible materials custom-fitted to your jaw, and prevent you from grinding your teeth together, halting the damaging effects of bruxism. Modern bite appliances are comfortable and effective, and last from three to ten years.

If you think a guard might be right for you, ask Dr. Johnson about your options. He will take an impression of your teeth, and the lab will create your custom piece. If you play sports or notice your jaw is sore after sleeping, let Dr. Johnson know – you’ll be glad you did!

Valorie

So pleased with the staff at Tawas Bay Dental. As a tourist from out of town, they went above and beyond in getting me into to see the dentist
after suffering from a severe toothache on vacation. I can’t say enough about the receptionist who was so kind and professional in listening to my concerns. I would highly recommend them to anyone living in the Tawas area. Only wish I lived closer because I would switch dentists in a heartbeat.
