Comfortable, Cost-Effective, Tooth-Saving.
Our teeth and jaws are subjected to tremendous amounts of stress and forces. Often, this worsens with age. Night time grinding of teeth or bruxism is a common cause of broken teeth, jaw pain, and headaches. Many people are unaware that they grind their teeth during their sleep.
- Are your teeth getting progressively shorter or chipped?
- Do you wake up with headaches or jaw joint (TMJ) pain?
- Do you break existing crowns or fillings?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may suffer from bruxism. A simple, cost-effective way to alleviate these symptoms is through the use of a dental night guard.
In just two visits, our Houston office can provide you with a custom, well-fitting night guard to prevent unwanted grinding of your teeth, reducing your risks of morning headaches, broken teeth, and gum disease.
Play hard, Keep Teeth.
Dr. Eric Choudhury and Dr. Alma Payumo are firm believers in protecting teeth while playing sports. According to the American Dental Association, more than 2 million teeth are knocked out each year due to sports-related injuries!
The National Youth Sports Foundation for the Prevention of Athletic Injuries, Inc. reports that dental injuries are the most common type of oral facial injury sustained during sports-related activities.
A custom-made sports mouth guard at our Houston dental office offers the best, most individualized protection for your teeth. It offers the best protection, fit, and comfort level because it is made from an exact model of your teeth. This means you or your child will be more comfortable wearing it – which also means they are more likely to use them. Also because they fit well, it’s more likely the guard will remain in place and not move around inside the mouth.
In just two simple, painless visits, your mouth guard can be fabricated to your mouth specifications and even customized to include your favorite team colors. That way, the next time your loved ones take the field, you can rest assured in knowing that their smile is safe.
