Frequently Asked Questions About Mouthguards
You are most likely a suitable candidate if you are one of the following:
Those who grind their teeth
A personalized mouth guard may be recommended if you suffer from persistent bruxism, which is the grinding of your teeth while you sleep. This can prevent your teeth from becoming worn down and your enamel from being damaged.
Patients suffering from TMJ dysfunction
The TMJs (temporomandibular joints) are the joints that connect the lower jaw to the skull and are placed right in front of the ears. A mouth guard helps alleviate strain on the joints, which is particularly beneficial if you clench your jaw when sleeping.
It is recommended for those who participate in contact sports such as football, boxing, hockey or rugby to protect their teeth.
A mouthguard is an oral appliance that you wear over your teeth while sleeping at night to protect your teeth against injury. Because it acts as a barrier between your upper and lower teeth, this guard helps to keep your teeth safe.
As you clench your jaw in sleep, the mouthguard will push this tightening to ease up, preventing you from grinding your teeth. Because it keeps your teeth from grinding together while you sleep, this device can help protect your teeth and alleviate facial and jaw pain by keeping your jaw from clenching while you sleep.
The disposable dental guards are designed for people with mild bruxism and are composed of thin plastic that can only be used for one to two weeks before needing replacement. When using boil-and-bite dental guards, you must first boil them before biting into them to get a good impression of your teeth.
Moreover, there are also day mouthguards. They are composed of soft plastic material that allows you to wear them throughout the day without discomfort. Wearing a day guard on your bottom teeth might relieve pressure on your lower teeth caused by clenching and grinding during the day.
- After wearing the mouthguard, rinse it thoroughly with warm water. This will eliminate dirt from the surface and prevent tooth plaque from accumulating.
- Make a routine of cleaning your mouth guard once a week to keep it in good condition.
- Allow the mouth guard to air dry completely after cleaning and drying it before placing it back in its carrying box.This will prevent bacteria from growing in the case’s contained environment, which will benefit. It should take no more than 15-20 minutes for the mouth guard to dry completely.
- When not in use, always store your mouthguard in its case to avoid contamination. It is less likely that you will lose or damage the mouth guard if you keep it in its case at all times.
