Mouthguards or occlusal guards or night guards, to protect the teeth and jaws from damage caused by bruxism (teeth grinding), clenching, or sports-related injuries. These custom-fitted oral appliances are typically made of durable materials and are designed to cushion the teeth and absorb the force of impact, reducing the risk of tooth wear, fractures, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Whether for nighttime use to prevent teeth grinding or for sports activities to prevent dental trauma, mouthguards prescribed by dentists offer effective protection and promote oral health and safety.


Who would require Mouthguards?

Mouthguards prescribed by dentists can benefit various individuals in different situations, including:


Individuals who participate in contact sports or activities with a risk of oral injuries, such as football, basketball, hockey, or martial arts, can benefit from wearing mouthguards. Custom-fitted mouthguards provided by dentists offer superior protection compared to over-the-counter options, reducing the risk of dental trauma, fractures, and soft tissue injuries during sports activities.

Patients with TMJ Disorders:

Individuals experiencing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, which involve pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and surrounding muscles, may find relief from wearing mouthguards prescribed by dentists. These devices can help alleviate jaw muscle tension, reduce jaw clenching, and improve overall jaw alignment, thus relieving TMJ-related symptoms.

Bruxism Patients:

People who suffer from bruxism, a condition characterized by teeth grinding or clenching, can benefit from wearing mouthguards at night. These oral appliances help protect the teeth from excessive wear, prevent damage to dental restorations, and alleviate symptoms associated with bruxism, such as jaw pain, headaches, and tooth sensitivity.

Patients Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment:

Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment with braces or other dental appliances may benefit from wearing mouthguards to protect their teeth and orthodontic hardware during physical activities or sports. Mouthguards can help prevent injuries to the teeth and soft tissues caused by impact or trauma, ensuring the success and longevity of orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontic Patients:

Botox injections can complement orthodontic treatments by assisting in the management of overactive muscles that may hinder orthodontic adjustments or contribute to malocclusions.

Overall, mouthguards prescribed by dentists offer tailored protection and support for individuals in various situations, promoting oral health, safety, and well-being. Consulting with a dentist can help determine the appropriate type of mouthguard based on the individual's specific needs, lifestyle, and oral health concerns.
