Mouthguards and Nightguards
When playing any type of sports especially high impact sports such as boxing, rugby, soccer and hockey, custom fitted mouthguards are strongly recommended as they can prevent dental injury and potentially help reduce concussions. The protection that mouthguards provide is a small investment in ensuring painful dental injuries and expensive treatments are avoided. Sporting store or pharmacy-bought mouthguards tend not to fit to your mouth properly and offer only limited protection. They may also interfere with breathing and speaking. Custom-fitted vacuum-formed mouthguards offer secure fit, comfort and maximum protection.
Night guards are also very useful for those who suffer from bruxism, a condition involving the excessive clenching or grinding of teeth. As it often occurs in a person’s sleep, many sufferers don’t even realise they’re doing it. Night guards, also known as an occlusal splint, provide a physical barrier to protect the teeth and prevent negative side effects such as the wearing down of teeth, cracking of teeth, jaw pain and other problems.
