Our office recommends using a mouth guard for our patients during sports or any event where your teeth, gums, and mouth require protection. For some patients, using a mouth guard while sleeping can also help with sleep apnea and prevent teeth grinding, also known as Bruxism.

When to Use a Mouthguard

  1.  Athletics: During physical activities and sports, a mouth guard is an important tool for an athlete regardless of their skill level. Having a mouth guard during physical activity can prevent dental injuries such as tooth chips, knocking out the tooth, damage to the gums and injury to your jawbone.
  2. Grinding teeth: The use of a mouth guard for those individuals who grind their teeth while sleeping is a crucial tool. Creating a soft cushion to prevent any damage to the tooth.
  3. Sleep Apnea: The use of a mouth guard can help open the airways for those individuals who suffer from sleep apnea. Helping the person have an easier time breathing and a better night’s sleep. Using a mouth guard while sleeping can also help prevent teeth grinding, also known as Bruxism.

A mouth guard is a protective device for your teeth and mouth, often used in sports to shield against injuries to the teeth, lips, and gums they are also used at night to prevent damage from teeth grinding (also known as Bruxism) and to address sleep apnea, and more. They are made of soft, flexible material and are custom fitted to your mouth for comfort and effectiveness.

When to use a mouth guard
  1. Athletics: Mouth guards for sports are essential equipment for athletes of all ages and skill levels. Whether you’re playing contact sports or recreational activities, a properly fitted mouth guard can prevent dental injuries, like chipped or knocked-out teeth, as well as protect your jaw and soft tissues.
  2. Bruxism: For those who suffer from bruxism, night guards are a saving grace. They create a cushion between your upper and lower teeth, effectively reducing the harmful effects of teeth grinding during sleep.
  3. Sleep Apnea: Individuals with sleep apnea can benefit from oral mouth guards to help keep their airways open, which provides essential relief from sleep-disordered breathing.

We encourage all those playing sports or suffering from bruxism or sleep apnea to use mouth guards and protect their smile and overall oral health!
