Protecting Sterling Heights Teeth
Injury from sports or damage caused by grinding and clenching your teeth while you sleep are the two most common ways that teeth are injured. Dr. Sudomir provides custom-made guards and bite appliances that provide your teeth with a strong first line of defence.
"Bruxism" is the medical term for when you grind your teeth in your sleep. Bruxism can occur without you even realising it, and it can result in extensive damage to your teeth over time. Left untreated, bruxism can chip and erode the enamel from your teeth, leaving them exposed to infection, injury and even tooth loss. Dr. Sudomir can fit you with a bite appliance, made to fit your mouth perfectly, that will prevent you from grinding your teeth and prevent your teeth from damage at nighttime.
Your teeth are left vulnerable during sports, especially contact sports such as hockey or football. We provide athletes with custom-fitted sports guards that protect their teeth from impact while you play.
If you play sports, or if you grind your teeth at night, contact Dr. Sudomir today to discuss how guards and appliances can help protect your teeth.
