Night Guards: A custom night guard is usualy worn on the upper teeth while sleeping. It is used to prevent excessive wear on teeth while asleep. Grinding is also known as "Bruxism" and is a subconcious habit when occuring during sleep. Grinding can cause sore or tiredness in jaw muscles in the morning, flattening of teeth, tooth fractures, gum recession, and indents or notchets on the root or biting surface of teeth.
Mouth Guards: Mouth guards are coverings worn over teeth, and often used to protect teeth from injury during sports. Custom-fitted mouth protectors are individually designed and made in a professional laboratory based on our instructions.
Dear Valued Patient,
First and foremost, we want to extend our gratitude to all of our patients and community members for understanding the changes we are having to implement because of current events.
The Alberta Dental Association and College has mandated that dental offices only provide emergency services due to COVID-19.
Your health and safety is our priority. In that light, and in an effort to keep everyone safe, we have suspended normal dental care at our office, BUT we are still AVAILABLE to treat DENTAL EMERGENCIES! The last thing we'd want at this time is for patients with a serious infection to go to a medical provider because they could not find a dental provider. That being said, if you encounter someone with a serious dental emergency, please inform them that we are here to help!
All non-essential upcoming appointments will be rescheduled into the future. If you have one coming up, expect a phone call from one of our team members, if you have not already.
We will hopefully have a better outlook in the next few weeks and will keep you updated from our side. We look forward to seeing you all after the crisis and well into the future.
Sincerely, Dr. Kinjal Patel Kingsview Dental
