WHY NOT USE STANDARD MOUTH GUARDS?
Heat mold mouth guards can often create problems and less protection for your child, or athlete. Mouth guards that are fitted by a qualified dentist will increase the coverage and protection significantly.
MOUTH GUARD COVERAGE
Mouth guards are meant to protect teeth, bridges, braces, and damage to your mouth when participating in sports or physical activity.

IS A CROWN OR BRIDGE RIGHT FOR ME?
If you have a tooth that is damaged or decayed, but still intact, a dental crown may be right for you. If your tooth is missing, but its former position is surrounded by other tooth structures, a bridge may be the solution for you. Schedule an office consultation to determine whether you could benefit from crowns or bridges.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I HAVE MY CROWN OR BRIDGE PLACED?
If you are a candidate for a crown or bridge, your teeth will be reduced to ensure a proper fit. An impression will then be taken of your bite and used to fabricate a mold for the crown or bridge. If you are choosing porcelain prosthesis, its color will be matched to the natural shade of your other teeth. If a dental lab is making your crown or bridge, you may be fitted with a temporary restoration until the permanent one is ready for placement.
DO I NEED TO FOLLOW ANY POST-TREATMENT CARE GUIDELINES?
Your teeth will need time to heal following the crown and bridge placement process, so it is normal for you to experience some sensitivity – especially to hot and cold. Additionally, you may experience soreness in the gums surrounding your restorations, though this is usually manageable with ibuprofen and should subside within a few days.
