Prevention of Oral / Dental Trauma
Mouth guards are worn over teeth and often used to protect against grinding and sporting incidents.
If you grind your teeth at night, a special bite plate or splint may be created to prevent tooth damage and sports guards are worn by adults and children who participate in a variety of physical activities such as football, boxing, gymnastics, soccer, etc.
A professionally made sports guard can help limit the risk of injury to the lips, tongue, and soft tissues of the mouth and may also contribute to avoid nerve damage, chipped/ broken teeth and tooth loss.
An effective mouth guard should be easy to clean, comfortable and durable without restricting your breathing or speech.
