NIGHTGUARDS

Mouthguards are flexible plastic appliances worn to protect the teeth, lips, cheeks, tongue and jaw. They are used during activities that can damage the teeth, most often during contact sports and – surprisingly – during sleep.

 

Properly fitted mouthguards can also help reduce the risk of head, neck and brain injury by absorbing and dispersing some of the shock caused by blows to the chin. Considering that the mouth is the most commonly injured part of the body during contact sports, mouthguards should be an essential component in most physical activities. Nightguards are specially designed mouthguards worn to protect the teeth from grinding (bruxing) or clenching of the jaw during sleep.
