Can I get a routine teeth cleaning?
Yes. We recommend that patient schedule a teeth cleaning appointment every six months. The patients who have gum disease may need to come at intervals of 3 – 4 months.
Do I need a night guard?
If the biting surfaces of your teeth are wearing down or if you are waking up with a sore jaw or pain, you may be a candidate for a nightguard. If you clench or grind your teeth, a nightguard could be your answer. Dr. McMall will complete a dental examination and help you find the right course of action.
Can you make me a mouth guard to protect my teeth while I play baseball?
Yes. Dr. McMall recommends that whenever you play or practice a sport, you wear a protective custom mouth guard. Unfortunately, accidents do happen and a properly fitted mouth guard will protect your teeth and your bite from the unexpected.
