Mouthguards are dental devices that cover your teeth. A mouthguard protects your teeth, tongue, gums, and cheeks from trauma caused by teeth grinding or sports injuries. Mouthguards cover your teeth to protect teeth and gums. Custom-fitted mouthguards fit and protect your teeth better than over-the-counter mouthguards. Night guards can ease bruxism (teeth grinding). Kids and adults should wear mouthguards during contact sports or activities like biking.

Depending on how frequently you use your mouthguard and how much “wear and tear” it takes, custom-fitted mouthguards can last several years with proper care. However, some people may find they need a mouthguard replaced more often than that. You should bring the mouthguard to your dental checkups so your East Downtown dentist can inspect it for cracks or other signs of wear.
