A sealant is a plastic resin material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth. This preventative measure allows the dentist to seal out sugar and food from the grooves and pits in teeth that are prime targets for decay.
Athletes can prevent sports-related mouth injuries (lost, chipped or broken teeth, nerve damage, fractured jaws, and concussions) by wearing a mouth guard that will provide protection. Custom-fitted mouth guards are made for you personally and offer a better fit than the "boil and bite" guards found in stores.
To prevent loss of tooth structure during nighttime grinding, Dr. Chen can create a thin durable hard plastic appliance custom-fitted for you to protect the enamel from further damage and relax the jaw muscles. The guard is adjusted to fit your bite evenly and smoothly to make it comfortable to wear each night.
