Bruxing or teeth grinding can cause serious problems, not only for patients, but for the people that live with them as well. A night guard is a custom-made appliance that a person wears during sleep to prevent the harmful effects of a teeth grinding habit. Some warning signs of bruxism include regularly waking up with a sore jaw, headache or earache, or teeth that appear worn or jagged at the edges.
A sport guard is a custom-made appliance created for athletes and physically active people to wear during sport or competitive physical activity to prevent injury to the jaw and teeth. By wearing a sport guard, you’ll be significantly reducing your risk of dental chipping or fracture, as well as preventing your teeth from becoming dislodged or lost – all problems that require certain dental procedures to fix.
