Discover the Benefits of Occlusal Guards with Dr. Taís Trevelin in San Diego
Occlusal guards, frequently referred to as night guards, are specially designed dental appliances crafted to protect your teeth against the effects of bruxism, which encompasses teeth grinding and clenching. This prevalent issue can cause significant damage to the tooth enamel, resulting in scratches, chips, and even more severe dental concerns.
At our Dental Office in San Diego, Dr. Taís Trevelin expertly examines each patient for signs of bruxism, ensuring that those affected receive a custom-fitted night guard tailored to their needs. The protective measure of these guards is twofold: not only do they shield the teeth from direct damage, but they also promote relaxation of the jaw muscles, reducing the chances of grinding and clenching. This relaxation can be especially beneficial for those at risk of developing Temporomandibular Jaw Disorder.
Furthermore, individuals with periodontal disease might find occlusal guards beneficial to stabilize their teeth. Each guard, made from clear acrylic resin, is meticulously molded for an impeccable fit, either on the upper or lower set of teeth, depending on a patient's comfort and preference. Dr. Taís Trevelin prides herself on ensuring the optimal fit for every patient. Should you find yourself in need of a night guard in San Diego, do not hesitate to reach out at (858) 679-8918 to schedule an impression appointment.
