Mouthguards are dental devices that fit over your teeth to protect your teeth, tongue, gums, and cheeks from trauma caused by teeth grinding or sports injuries.
At Serenity Dental, we fabricate customized sports guards that are tailor-fitted for your mouth, which means they won’t get loose or fall out. These guards not only allow you to speak, but they also protect from impact and injury as a result of playing sports. Mouthguards are a simple, effective, and affordable way to protect the soft tissues of your mouth.
Who might need a mouthguard?
Both children and adults may need a mouthguard for multiple reasons. Your dentist may recommend a mouthguard if you or your child:
- Plays a contact sport like football, basketball, lacrosse, hockey, or soccer that increases the risk of a hit to the face
- Has a habit of grinding teeth (bruxism). Although there is no ‘cure’ for grinding your teeth, mouth guards for teeth grinding can majorly help prevent further damage.
- Participate in non-contact sports or activities with a high fall risk, like ice skating, gymnastics, or biking
