Sportguards & Mouthguards
Are you playing contact sports? Or grinding your teeth at night?
A mouth guard is a bespoke dental appliance made by the dental lab in order to protect your teeth against sport injuries or other tooth wear (grinding, clenching).
A sport mouth guard or a sportguard, is a dental appliance that is prescribed to an athlete to protect his teeth from being damaged from a physical blow to the face or an accident. A sportguard is usually made with a thicker material and given its purpose. It is made to extend to cover the entire jaw. Even the gum issue so that the entire mouth can be protected.
A nightguard or a night mouth guard is prescribed to patients who suffer from jaw problems or teeth grinding (bruxism). It prevents further tooth wear.
