Night and Athletic Mouth Guards

Mouth guards can play a very important role in the health of your teeth and jaw bone when it comes to playing sports or having issues with teeth grinding while sleeping.

Often, people with jaw pain will benefit from wearing a soft or firm device inserted over their teeth, which helps eliminate the strain on the jaw which often is a result due to the clenching of the teeth. Many people are unaware of the teeth grinding while asleep, thus the term bite guard has often been referred as a night guard.

A sport mouth guard is prescribed to an athlete to protect his or her teeth from being damaged from a physical blow to the face or an accident. A sport mouthguard is made from a thicker material and given its purpose, it is made to extend to cover the entire jaw, even the gum area so that the entire mouth is protected.
