Sportsguards

For children, it's all about play time. But playing sports or being active never gets old. That's a good thing! The bad thing is all that activity can put your teeth at risk. That's why it's so important to protect your smile with a sportsguard. Sportsguards protect your teeth from getting broken, chipped or, worse, knocked out.

Custom sports guards are available at Convent Glen Dental Centre. A dental sports guard is ideal for all ages. With custom sports guards, you can avoid all the pitfalls that come with the over-the-counter versions: poor fit and poor quality.

Bite Splints

A bite splint is a removable appliance, usually fabricated of resin, most often designed to cover all the occlusal and incisal surfaces of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. It is being used frequently in treatment of patients with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) and related diseases such as tension headache and neck pain.

One advantage with bite splints is that they provide a relatively easy, inexpensive and nonharmful way to make reversible changes in the occlusion. The goal for bite splint treatment is mainly to improve jaw muscle and TMJ function and to relieve pain related to dysfunction of those systems. The most common reason for bite splint prescription is, however, bruxism.

If you have experienced some changes in your bite due to tooth loss, accidents or recently placed dental restorations, Dr. Mosco and associates at Convent Glen Dental Centre can help you. Call now for a private consultation.
