Wearing a mouthguard is a great way to protect your teeth while playing sports or participating in activities that could come with the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw. A typical mouthguard will protect the upper teeth and will also provide protection for the soft tissues of your mouth including the tongue, lips and cheek lining.
Mouthguards, known as night guards, may also be utilized to protect the teeth. These guards are worn while sleeping to protect your tooth enamel, cushion the jaw muscles to alleviate issues associated with nighttime Bruxism, more commonly known as teeth grinding. We will help you determine which mouthguard is right for you to protect your smile based on your unique lifestyle.
Mouth Guards and Night Guards for Adults
Mouthguards and/or night guards can also protect the smiles of adults who lead active lifestyles or have issues with night grinding. Your dentist can work with you to find the best option for a custom-fitting mouthguard to save your smile from the possibility of injury or long-term issues caused from grinding.
