Mouth Guards in Selah
Millions of athletes wear protective mouth guards to prevent injury to their teeth and other oral structures. Worn over the teeth, these devices are highly effective in significantly reducing the likelihood of tooth wear, oral injury and jaw problems.
At Selah Creek Dental, our mouth guards are constructed from top-quality, lightweight materials that provide protection and comfort without interfering with the user’s normal speaking or breathing.
Our practice has provided mouth guards for athletes participating in all types of contact and non-contact sports. Athletes face a risk of oral injury and structural damage to the mouth. These risks can be greatly reduced by wearing a protective mouth guard. It has also been proven that mouth guards reduce the risk of concussions and lacerations to the tongue, cheeks and lips.
Selah Creek Dental also offers night guards for patients suffering from bruxism, which refers to the unwanted habit of clenching and grinding one’s teeth while sleeping. Patients suffering from bruxism are very likely to experience excessive tooth wear, jaw discomfort, headaches and fractures of the teeth. By wearing a specially designed night guard while sleeping, these unpleasant symptoms can often be eliminated entirely.
