How can mouth guards help protect your teeth?

Mouth guards are special structures that help protect your teeth in the same manner helmets work. When you sleep at night or during sports, you are more likely to grind your teeth, a situation that can destroy them gradually. Fortunately, with the help of mouth guards, you can avoid such a scenario and continue to enjoy your good oral health. Extreme sports may also involve direct contact with the face and mouth region, making tooth damage a real possibility when not protected by a mouth guard. All these scenarios put your teeth in danger, with the potential to harm your ability to eat as well as changing how you look. Avoid teeth problems with a customized mouth guard from Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates.

Sports That Require the Use of Mouth Guards

Different sports have unique requirements, and the American Dental Association helps set these rules. In most sports, there is thorough enforcement of some rules, putting you at the mercies of your discipline. Sports that may require mouthguards anytime you are in the field include:

  • Soccer
  • Rugby
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Wrestling
  • Lacrosse

Mouth guards are not limited to sportspeople, as many people tend to grind their teeth at night when sleeping. Such a practice will gradually wear down the enamel of your teeth, putting you at risk of dental problems to contend with in the future. Clenching your jaws can also mean a recession of your gums, a situation that can add to your dental problems. Mouth guards also come in handy for people with braces to protect them from sport-related dental issues.
