Mouthguards also known as night guards or sports guards – are designed to protect the teeth and jaw from damage.
A mouthguard is a custom made rubber-like material that fits over your teeth and gums perfectly, protecting them from any damage. This damage can be caused by clenching, grinding and playing contact sports.
The “boil and bite” mouthguards found in stores don’t provide a custom set like professional mouthguards do. These over-the-counter mouthguards aren’t as comfortable, can fall out and don’t provide as much protection compared to custom made ones.
We offer two types of mouthguards:
Many patients unknowingly grind or clench their teeth at night causing damage and wear to the teeth. This is also known as Bruxism. Having a custom-fitted mouthguard made will protect the teeth at night from these unconscious habits. They can also help to reduce snoring and relieve obstructive sleep apnea.
Another issue for why you might need a nightguard is TMJ – temporomandibular joint disorder. A mouthguard may help you with morning headaches, TMJ jaw pain relief, and to prevent damage to your teeth, jaw, crowns, and other dental restorations.
Wearing mouthguards is essential in preventing any injuries during contact sports. Mouthguards help cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw. They typically cover the upper teeth and are a great way to protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining.
Such impacts may occur in many sports including baseball, boxing, mixed martial arts, rugby, wrestling, football, lacrosse, basketball, figure skating, ice hockey, underwater hockey, field hockey, water polo, skiing and snowboarding. Mouthguards may also prevent or reduce harm levels of concussion in the event of an injury to the jaw.
