Teeth make it possible for you to munch food, breathe and smile beautifully. They support us so much, and they deserve to be watched out for. With proper care, your pearly whites can last a lifetime. In addition to brushing twice daily and flossing once a day, wearing a mouth guard is a good way to guard your teeth. Here are some things you should be aware of about dental mouth guards:

-Oral mouth guards can shield your mouth against facial trauma, but they also defend against less obvious dangers. If you grind your teeth at night, a night guard could aid you to shield your teeth from chipping and cracking, and it could also lessen morning jaw throbbing and soreness.

-Oral mouth guards can be custom fashioned to fit your mouth better than boil-and-clamp guards, and they are the preferred mouth guard of athletes. You should wear a mouth guard during all extreme outdoor activities.

-Technicians in a dental laboratory develop custom-made mouth guards in very specific conditions designed to ensure strength and sturdiness in your mouth guard.

-Although they’re made to extremely high standards, mouth guards don’t last forever. (They’re guarding your chompers against injury, so they normally take that harm themselves.) Dr. Summer Enlow will look at your mouth guard during your twice-yearly appointments.
