If you are a teeth-grinder or jaw-clencher, while awake or asleep, a mouthguard can provide relief from a headache or TMJ jaw pain. The treatment eliminates the intensity of your teeth clenching and so relief from muscular pain comes in just a few days of wearing the mouthguard.
More importantly, if you grind your teeth a guard will protect them from excessive wear and fracturing that can lead to cavities and early tooth loss.
Another purpose of a mouthguard is to protect the teeth during sports. In sports such as football, boxing, martial arts, biking, softball and hockey, injury prevention through a fitted mouthguard is considered essential. The mouth is the most commonly injured area of the body during contact sports.
Athletic mouth guards are used in sports where deliberate or accidental impacts to the face and jaw may cause harm. Mouth guards prevent or reduce harm levels of concussion in the injury to the jaw.
Athletic guards are really important for active teenagers, so mom’s don’t forget to invest in protection for those pearly whites!
Having a custom-made mouthguard helps to protect teeth, gums and in many cases, lips and cheeks.
