Nightguards & Sportsguards

How Nightguards & Sportsguards Can Help Me?

Nightguards & Sportsguards For Saving Teeth 

How it would be like if you unexpectedly lost one of your front teeth? Speaking, eating, and smiling would all be impacted leading to impaired smiles and problems chewing your food. The one & only motive of mouthguards is to save your mouth from injury & teeth from getting loose, knocked out, or chipped. In addition to your teeth, a guard can protect your cheeks, jaw, gums, and mouth from getting injured. There are two kinds of custom-made mouthguards available at Blackwell Dentistry that have various designs to save your teeth and mouth; sports mouth guards and night mouthguards. Both mouthguards and sports guards can protect your teeth from any possible harm or damage, however, they protect them in two distinct ways. Deciding which custom mouth guard you need will rely on your dental conditions and why you need them.

Sport Mouthguards 

Many professionals suggest wearing a custom sports guard for everyone involved in sports in which collision and contact are possible to happen. Sports mouthguards get designed to cover your entire mouth & also your jaw, cheeks, teeth, and gums. They are made using a thick plastic that protects all of your teeth from front to back and your gums for an additional shield. These custom mouthguards save your teeth by distributing the impact of the collision over a larger area rather than just having the impact absorbed by a single tooth that could get become damaged. 

Night Mouthguards

Bruxism is a common tooth grinding, and clenching problem found mostly in people when they are asleep can cause considerable damage to teeth and drive discomfort or pain to the gums and jaw. To prevent this habit from harming teeth and inducing pain, Blackwell dentists suggest wearing a nightguard to set a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth to prevent them from grinding against each other. These night guards are made using a strong, thin plastic high-quality material that can absorb all of the grinding force so you can have a relaxing, peaceful sleep and wake up with no pain. The night mouthguards also only need to cover the grinding part or biting surface of your teeth, making them more comfortable than clunkier sports mouthguards.
