Our teeth can be injured in an instant, or they can be slowly damaged over time. There are two common ways in which we harm our teeth: playing sports, and grinding and clenching while we sleep.
At Markham Eglinton Dental Centre, we can fit you for custom guards and bite appliances that help to protect your teeth from both types of damage.
When you clench or grind your teeth while your sleep, dentists refer to this as "bruxism." It can result in chipped teeth, damaged fillings, painful headaches, and can even loosen your teeth. We can fit you with a special night guard that will protect your teeth from breaking down while you sleep.
Sports often leave your teeth vulnerable -- particularly in contact sports such as hockey and football. We can fit athletes with sports guards to protect their teeth during physical activity.
