Mouth guards and occlusal splints
A mouth guard is used to protect against impacts that may hurt your teeth during sports. It is possible to obtain one at a sports shop. However, a custom mouth guard made by a dentist or denturist that perfectly fits your teeth will be adjusted and more stable. It is the safest way to prevent injury from sports such as football, hockey, boxing and wrestling. An occlusal splint is made of acrylic and will stop your teeth from touching each other and will prevent grinding. It will greatly reduce the friction wear of your teeth. It also helps loosening jaw muscles and can ease the pain. You can wear it day or night, according to the dentist’s advice.
