Many people who notice chipped or cracked teeth, but who don’t remember when the injury occurred, damaged their teeth while they were sleeping. Grinding or clenching your teeth during the night will cause your teeth to chip, crack, and even break. To keep you from seriously damaging your teeth, we recommend a dental appliance called a night-guard, which protects your teeth from grinding and clenching in your sleep. Our team takes great care in making sure you have a proper fit to prevent pain in your jaw joint. Do you also suffer from headaches? If so, you may find that a side benefit of your night-guard is headache prevention. Many headaches start during the night, caused by the extreme pressure generated as you grind and clench your teeth. Ask our team about having a night-guard custom created especially for you.
If your child plays sports or other similar activities, mouth guards are a great way to protect their teeth from potential injury. Mouthguards are easy to clean, come in many color combinations and are custom made to fit comfortably in your child’s mouth.
“I have been coming to Dr. Mullikin’s for 22 years. I was a little apprehensive when I found out that my dentist for most of my life would no longer be there. Wow was I pleasantly surprised that he left the practice in good hands. Dr. Wohlers was comforting and knowledgeable. She took time to meet with me and discuss any possible issues or concerns with my dental care. The staff did a great job of making the transition a mute point. My visit was just like the past 22 years, a place that is warm and welcoming. I have no concerns about continuing my dental care with Wohlers Family Dentistry. Here is to another 20 plus years together”
we can’t wait to see you!
