detection is the key to avoide costly and commplicated
dental treatment. Prevention begins with the control
of plaque and calculus, the main cause of decay and
periodontal disease. In fact, the major cause of tooth
loss in adults is periodontal disease, which is known
as the silent killer of teeth because most patients
feel no symptoms until it's too late. With regular
dental visits, we can treat teeth and gum disease
at an early stage, before it gets out of hand.
Sports Guards & Brux (grinding) guards
are preventive appliances. They prevent damage or further
damage to your teeth & gums. Although both the sports
guard & brux guard's design is similar, the material
from which they are made are different.
Sports Guards are designed to protect
an athlete's teeth during a sporting activity. These guards
are particularly recommended for players engaged in semi-
or full-contact sports. Examples are: Hockey, Soccer,
Football, Karate, etc. The benefits of wearing a sports
guard are obvious. In addition to the bracing & cushioning
effect of the guard, the low cost of a sports guard dramatically
outweigh the cost of repairing damaged or fractured teeth.
