Why might I need a mouthguard?
A Mouthguard is perfect for people who:
Suffer from bruxism, which is a sleeping disorder where one grinds or clenches their teeth during sleep. This can cause tooth and jaw pain, and sore gums.
Suffer from mild Sleep Apnea, which is a sleeping disorder that causes one to temporarily stop breathing while sleeping. A mouthguard for sleep apnea would push your lower jaw and tongue forward to keep your airway open.
Suffer from tooth fractures or cracks due to excessive biting forces
Play a certain sport that has a high risk of falling or injuries to your face
What are the procedures involved?
In order to make a nightguard, a dental impression of your teeth will be taken and sent to a lab. Afterward, a custom-made mouthguard can be fabricated to fit your teeth and help protect your teeth from wear or trauma.
