While restorative dentistry services can help to save a tooth that has been damaged by decay, erosion, or injury, it is always best to care for the teeth and prevent these problems from developing. Brushing and flossing are vital to the health of the teeth and are a necessary part of any good oral hygiene routine. But what about protecting the teeth from external damage, such as that caused by injury or abrasion? To protect the teeth from this type of damage, a custom-fit dental mouth guard can be extremely helpful. Although typically thought of as a piece of sports equipment, a mouth guard can actually protect the teeth in a number of ways, making many of Dr. Patrick Tanner’s South Ogden patients ideal mouth guard candidates.
The custom-fit mouth guards that are offered by Dr. Tanner are fabricated based on the specific measurements of each patient, providing them with a comfortable and secure fit. This allows patients to wear these pieces while they sleep or while they participate in sporting events. Mouth guards protect and shield the teeth against damage and are a great option for the following types of patients:
Patients who suffer from any of the above conditions should discuss their situation with Dr. Tanner to learn if a custom-fit mouth guard can benefit their teeth and oral health.
