Do you wake up in the morning and almost immediately have a headache? Does your jaw hurt on a daily basis? If so, you may need a nightguard. Often, constant jaw aching is the result of clenching your teeth in the night. A nightguard will stop teeth clenching and reduce jaw stress. On top of this, nightguards also reduce wear and tear of the enamel and tooth structure, which helps prevent tooth deterioration.
If you play sports, with or without physical contact, you know the risks involved for your teeth. Whether it’s a flying puck or someone’s elbow, your teeth could become very damaged during sports. Sports guards are the perfect remedy to this problem. They’ll protect your teeth from clenching and contact with foreign objects so you won’t have to smile with a chipped or missing tooth.
