As a multi-specialty dentist near you, our dentist can provide a range of services spanning from general dentistry to cosmetic dentistry and emergency dentistry to appliance dentistry. If you’re not familiar with appliance therapy and its uses in modern dentistry, we invite you to keep reading to learn how Marshfield Dental Group can protect teeth against sports injuries or the consequence of teeth grinding.
Even though prefabricated sports guards can be purchased over-the-counter or online, there is no substitution for a custom sports guard that our dentist in Marshfield, MA, will design for maximum comfort, dependability, and protection. By taking impressions of your teeth, or the teeth of your child, instead of relying on boil-and-bite methods, you’ll have the added assurance that teeth will be protected against chipping, fracturing, dislodging, and even protect against jaw dislocations. Also, because you’ve worked one-on-one with our dentist for customization of your sports guard, you have the convenience of knowing that Dr. Feeney is only a phone call away if you should need a replacement in an emergency!
Whether you know the sensation as an aching jaw or have already had it diagnosed as bruxism, our dentist can provide you with a custom-fit nightguard that will perform better than any over-the-counter product you may be tempted to try. There are three types of materials that can be used in your night guard, which include soft plastic, double laminated, and hard acrylic. Each material has a distinct application for the degree of bruxism that you’re experiencing, and our dentist will make a recommendation on which material is best for your appliance therapy during your consultation.
We invite you to make an appointment with Dr. Feeney and her team to receive personalized, customized, and comprehensive care for appliance therapy or any of the other multi-specialty services provided in our family-friendly dentist office.
