If you grind and clench your teeth while you sleep or if you play sports, then you may want to ask Dr. Parag Kirpekar about wearing a mouth guard. Our dentist offers this oral appliance because it can protect your teeth from injury, strain, or wear. Call our practice if you would like to learn more about our mouth guards in Parma, Ohio.
To protect your teeth against nighttime teeth grinding and sports injuries, we provide custom mouth guards. We offer two types of mouth guards:
- Night guards: Night guards are custom-made to provide a barrier between your teeth to protect against nighttime clenching and grinding. These custom appliances can protect both your teeth and your bite.
- Sports guards: Sports guards are custom-made to protect your teeth and jaw during sports or other physical activities. Sports guards can also protect your lips, tongue, and cheeks.
Your custom mouth guard will be created using impressions of your teeth for the perfect fit. Made out of comfortable molded plastic, mouth guards can last between three and ten years when properly taken care of. If you are interested in learning more about mouth guards or our other services, please call our office today. We look forward to hearing from you!
