Do you wake up in the morning with a sore jaw, headache or notice your teeth are chipped or cracked? You might be suffering from bruxism, which causes involuntary grinding of the teeth while sleeping. If left to continue, night grinding can lead to many problems down the road. A custom mouth guard is highly effective in stopping bruxism in its tracks. The soft yet firm material is made for absorbing the grinding force put out during the night. This also helps to keep the jaw in a stable and desirable position.
A mouth guard is one of the most effective ways to prevent sports-related injuries from happening to the mouth. While common for many contact sports, a sports guard should also be considered for non-contact sports, because you never know when an accident will occur. Thousands of injuries are prevented each year due to wearing a mouth guard. Even more, are prevented due to wearing a custom mouth guard made by a dentist instead of a generic one bought from a store. Why? The open pockets that exist with a generic mouth guard can still allow some of the trauma’s force to cause damage to the teeth.
If you or your loved one participates in sports or athletic activities, it is a wise idea to protect your smile using a custom mouth guard. Schedule an appointment today for mouth guards in Peoria, AZ.
