It’s important to protect your teeth from injury and damage. Sports guards and night appliances are both designed to protect your mouth while fitting comfortably and securely.
Night appliances, also called bite appliances, are designed to prevent nighttime teeth grinding and clenching. Grinding and clenching can lead to chronic jaw pain and headaches, misaligned teeth, and damage to your enamel. The appliance fits comfortably in your mouth and keeps your jaws from moving while you sleep.
A sports guard can’t prevent you from getting hit in the mouth with a frozen puck, but it can help keep your teeth safe if it happens. The guard absorbs the force of the impact and protects your teeth from being cracked or broken. Guards protect against impacts and falls, and they’re custom made to fit your mouth so they won’t slip or shift.
