Mouth Guards/Night Guards
A mouthguard is a soft plastic appliance that fits over the teeth. When a properly designed, custom-made mouthguard is worn, the lips, cheek, tongue and jaws are protected, as well as the teeth. The American Dental Association estimates that mouthguards prevent 200,000 injuries each year in high-school and college sports alone.
Nightguards are mouthguards that have been specially designed to be worn by people who suffer from teeth grinding or jaw clenching while they are sleeping. Untreated teeth grinding and jaw clenching can lead to severe damage of your teeth.
