Mouthguards are used to protect your teeth and mouth.
Many people grind their teeth at night, which can cause a lot of damage. It is often beneficial for them to wear a mouthguard at night. Mouthguards are also helpful during sports activities. They can help protect your teeth and jaw from any damage from accidents like a blow to the face. Whether or not the sport you play is high-impact, you may find it helpful to wear a mouthguard in case you clench your teeth during the game.
There are many types of mouthguards. Some are pre-formed, while others are customized to fit your teeth and jaw. Most mouthguards are used only on your top teeth, though some people need to have mouthguards on both their top and bottom teeth.
After a thorough examination, we would be happy to discuss your options so you can protect your teeth from grinding during the night and damage during your favorite sports activities.
