At Alpine Dental, we take impressions or molds of your teeth and customize trays right here in our Farmington office. Typically it takes four to five business days to have the molds ready for you to come back and do a fitting.
An occlusal guard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums. They are used prevent bruxism, which is the grinding of the teeth and typically includes the clenching of the jaw. In most people, bruxism is mild enough not to be a health problem. While bruxism may be a diurnal or nocturnal activity, it is bruxism during sleep that causes the majority of health issues. It can even occur during short naps.
We invite you to experience pain-free dentistry in our conveniently located Farmington office.
