What Are Mouth Guards?
Why Mouth Guards?
Certain soft and hard tissues within the oral cavity can be prone to various oral habits and physical trauma or stress leading to harm to the hard tissue (teeth) and soft tissues (gums).
In both cases, mouth guards or night guards are the best solutions to prevent and keep your teeth safe from such habits or injuries. Mouth/Night Guards are made to reduce the effects of teeth wear and damage to a greater extent.
