Mouthguards are essential if you want to keep your teeth happy, healthy, and protected. One Brilliant Dental offers several types of mouthguards to protect your teeth and ensure their health.
When you sleep, your teeth should rest comfortably in the mouth. However, many individuals suffer from jaw problems and other dental issues that lead to clenching of the teeth or grinding them while sleeping. Tooth grinding is dangerous, as the enamel can become worn down or break under the pressure of your jaws. A mouth guard protects the teeth from coming in contact with one another during the night, protecting them from damage that could be caused while you rest soundly.
Playing sports of any kind can lead to injuries and incidents. Even if the sport does not require contact, the teeth can be subject to bumps and shocks that lead to damage and dental problems. When participating in sports, wearing a mouthguard significantly reduces the risk of injury by protecting teeth. They are a barrier between the upper and lower teeth, allowing you to play sports without worrying about your teeth being cracked, broken, or knocked out.
If you or a loved one has ever been concerned or bothered by your snoring, then you may benefit from a mouthguard. Mouthguards can cause the mouth to adjust and eliminate the factors that cause snoring, reducing the amount of rest being interrupted in the middle of the night. Snoring may also be indicative of sleep apnea, which can be seriously detrimental to health. If you suspect that sleep apnea has been affecting your sleep, you may contact your dentist and get more information about sleep apnea and how we can help you.
