One of the best ways to prevent serious oral injury when playing a contact sport is to wear a protective mouthguard. These lightweight devices are worn over a person’s teeth, providing the wearer with outstanding oral protection. Mouthguards typically feel very comfortable inside the mouth, and they do not interfere with the user’s ability to speak or breathe. Studies have proven that athletes who wear mouthguards are less likely to experience tooth wear, oral injury, and jaw problems when they have a direct impact on the mouth. At Bosler Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer mouthguards custom-made for both children and adults.
Mouthguards are used by both professional and amateur athletes who participate in a variety of sports and activities. It is critical that athletes wear mouthguards to prevent oral injury and structural damage to the mouth. Additional studies have shown that mouthguards also reduce the likelihood of concussion or lacerations to the tongue, cheeks, and lips.
We also offer special mouthguards that are designed to be worn while sleeping. Night guards are used to address the issue of bruxism, a common sleeping disorder that affects millions of people. Bruxism refers to the habit of clenching and grinding one’s teeth while asleep. This condition can lead to excessive tooth wear, jaw discomfort, headaches, and tooth fractures. By wearing a night guard, it is possible to significantly reduce these unpleasant symptoms or even eliminate them entirely.
