  • What are the types of dental mouthguards?

    Variants of dental mouthguards include three options as outlined below:

    • Stock Mouth Protectors: These are pre-made and may feel cumbersome, providing basic protection.
    • Boil and Bite Mouth Protectors: Offering a more customized fit for increased comfort, these can be purchased at sports retailers.
    • Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards: Crafted in-house based on molds of your teeth, these deliver optimal safeguarding and comfort.
  • What are options for treating TMJ?

     The joint that connects the lower jaw to the temporal bone of the skull, known as the temporomandibular joint or TMJ, can sometimes become painful or cause discomfort. This condition, called TMJ disorder, can lead to aching in the jaw and neck area, clicking sounds when opening or closing the mouth, and limited jaw movement.

    The good news is there are several ways to ease TMJ disorder symptoms. You can alleviate TMJ symptoms by:

    • Wearing a temporary night guard
    • Avoiding sudden and sharp jaw movements
    • Applying ice to reduce inflammation
    • Modifying your diet to softer foods to reduce chewing motions
    • Practicing relaxation and stretching techniques that relieve tension
  • Why are mouthguards important in sports?

    Mouthguards are essential protective gear for athletes. Wearing a mouthguard when participating in sports helps safeguard against various injuries.

     

    Wearing a mouthguard when playing sports is crucial for several reasons:

    • Protects against displacing teeth by distributing force evenly
    • Prevents injuries to soft tissues
    • Reduces risk of jaw and teeth fractures
    • May help prevent concussions by lessening the force on the skull from jaw impact

    In short, mouthguards are essential in sports as they safeguard teeth alignment, soft mouth tissues, the jaw, and possibly even the brain.
