Mouth Guards are useful for any contact sports or sports with moving objects. Such as Rugby, Cricket or boxing. A professionally made mouth guard will help protect your teeth from any blows you may face towards your mouth reducing the chance of losing your teeth.
Mouth guards/ dental splints are also useful for people with excessive teeth grinding/ clenching of the jaw also known as Bruxism. This can cause aching jaw joints, morning headaches, migraines, stiff neck etc. all of these conditions may be due to hyperactivity of jaw muscles.
A mouth guard is a custom made rubber like casing that fits perfectly over your teeth with the aim of cushioning and protecting your teeth from any accidental blows. Giving you the confidence to play without having to worry about damaging your teeth and facing expensive dental work for missing teeth.
A mouth guard for teeth grinding is made of softer material compared to sports mouth guard. Your custom mouth guard should be worn overnight whilst you are sleeping. This will create a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth preventing tooth movement and evening out the pressure in your mouth.
If you have any queries and would like to have a mouth guard made please give us a call.
