Teeth help you to munch food, breathe and smile beautifully. They support us so much, and they need to be looked out for. With proper care, your chompers can last a lifetime. In addition to brushing twice daily and flossing once a day, sporting a mouth guard is an awesome way to protect your pearly whites. Here are a few things you should be aware of about dental mouth guards:

-Oral mouth guards can protect your oral cavity against trauma, but they also defend against less obvious dangers. If you grind your pearly whites at night, a night guard could assist you to guard your teeth against chipping and cracking, and it could also mitigate morning jaw pain and soreness.

-Oral mouth guards can be custom made to fit your oral cavity better than boil-and-clamp guards, and they are the preferred mouth guard of athletes. You should wear a mouth guard during all extreme outdoor activities and sports.

-Technicians in a dental lab fashion custom-created mouth guards in very specific environments designed to make sure strength and sturdiness in your mouth guard.

-Although they’re built to high standards, mouth guards don’t last forever. (They’re protecting your teeth from harm, so they normally take that harm themselves.) Dr. Ron Ranson will evaluate your mouth guard during your six-month visits.
