Night guards and retainers play a critical role in maintaining your oral health, especially for those who have recently completed cosmetic and orthodontic treatments or struggle with teeth grinding. These dental appliances offer protection, longevity, and peace of mind, ensuring that your smile remains healthy and beautiful.
Removable Orthotic or Night Guard Treatment
TMD disorders lead to a variety of dental issues, including tooth sensitivity, enamel wear, and even tooth fractures. A custom-made night guard (orthotic) acts as a barrier between your upper and lower teeth, minimizing the risks of damage as you sleep. Additionally, mouth guards will help in the following ways:
- Preventing tooth wear and fractures
- Reducing jaw pain and risk of TMJ disorders
- Minimizing sleep disturbances caused by grinding
- Alleviating tooth sensitivity and pain
- Decreasing muscle tension in the jaw and face
The night guard can be worn only at night, however, in some instances, our guests receive so much relief they prefer to wear it during the daytime as well.
The Importance of Retainers
Retainers are another essential dental appliance, particularly for those who have recently undergone orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign, to correct teeth misalignment. Your teeth are prone to shifting back to their original position, especially in the initial months after treatment is completed. The retainer is designed to keep your teeth in their new, straight position, allowing the surrounding bone and tissues to adapt and stabilize. Wearing a retainer regularly as prescribed ensures that your teeth remain straight and your investment is protected. The benefits of retainers include:
- Maintaining proper teeth alignment
- Avoiding orthodontic relapse
- Preserving a healthy and attractive smile
- Supporting long-lasting oral health and hygiene
- Preventing future dental issues and costs
