Mouthguard in Edmonton
Mouth guards are worn over your teeth to protect them from injury, either from teeth grinding or during sports.
Typically, mouthguards are made to cover your upper teeth only. In some cases, if you wear braces or a dental appliance on your lower jaw, your dentist may recommend a mouthguard for your lower teeth as well.
There are several types of mouth guards for you to chose from:
Mouthguards can be used by anyone. If you play sports – even non-contact sports – we recommend using a mouthguard. If you wake up with headaches, an aching jaw or don’t feel well-rested in the morning, you could be suffering from bruxism, and my benefit from an occlusial splint.
Your dentist is your best resource in finding the best mouthguard for you. An effective mouth guard should be comfortable, durable, easy to clean, and should not obstruct your breathing or speech.
You only have one set of adult teeth, and keeping them as log as you possible can is the best strategy for your overall oral health.
