What Are Mouth Guards?

Mouth guards are custom made trays that fit snugly around the teeth of both upper and lower jaws. This tray fits itself around your teeth and prevents teeth grinding or clenching and physical injury or trauma. For the first weeks, it may feel a little discomforting or inconvenient to wear the guards, and with regular use, you will get used to and find it easy to wear and retain.

Why Mouth Guards?

Our oral cavity is often neglected and is considered to be a separate entity with no connections to the whole body. The story is all different. The oral cavity is the most important part of the human body and consists of hard and soft tissues that play important functions for the body. It is best to say that the oral cavity is the gateway to the body. Oral health requires precise attention, in all ages and has to be maintained in all aspects.

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).

Teeth Grinding

The most typical oral habit is teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism) during sleep or awake. This can be experienced by both children, adults, old males, and females. This unnatural behavior causes severe damage to the teeth. Grinding or clenching wears off the outermost hard layer of teeth (enamel) or restorations, allowing the teeth to become more sensitive, pain/tenderness/tension in the jaw muscles, and headaches. These symptoms may vary and could be negligible or definite, with or without patients cognizance.

Sports injuries

Another factor that leads to tooth wear or damage is sports or athletics. The people who are athletes or play sports are at higher risk of getting teeth injury. Mouth-related injuries in sports are common and can lead to broken, chipped, fractured teeth crowns, and roots. Soft tissue injuries involve lip, or intra-oral tissue lacerations, etc.

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.
