Prevent further damage to your teeth

If you have problems with grinding your teeth at night, this can slowly wear down your teeth. Once the enamel is gone, sensitivity can become a real issue, causing pain when eating or drinking hot or cold items.

To prevent nightly grinding, we can create a specialized mouthguard known as a nocturnal bite plate or bite splint that will actively prevent tooth damage from occurring. While your jaw will still want to grind your teeth, the teeth will have a protective barrier between them.

The real cost of teeth grinding

Do you grind your teeth at night? Did you know this can be extremely bad for your teeth? When your teeth grind, it will wear down the enamel. The enamel protects the tooth from things like tooth decay. While it can take a few years for this to happen, every night that your teeth grind, it wears down the surface just a little bit more.

To prevent enamel loss and tooth decay, a mouthguard can be put in at bedtime. This will stop teeth from rubbing together and effectively fight against tooth damage and chipping.

What is a mouthguard and why is it important?

A mouthguard is a protective dental device made of soft, flexible material that fits over your teeth. It’s essential for people participating in sports or physical activities, as it helps cushion the teeth, gums, and jaws, reducing the risk of injuries such as broken teeth, cut lips, or jaw fractures. Mouthguards can also help protect against teeth grinding (bruxism) during sleep, preventing tooth damage and reducing jaw pain.

What are the different types of mouthguards?

There are three main types of mouthguards:

  1. Stock mouthguards: These are pre-made, ready-to-wear mouthguards available in various sizes. They’re the least expensive option but may not fit as comfortably or provide the best protection.
  2. Boil-and-bite mouthguards: These mouthguards can be molded to fit your teeth by softening them in hot water and then biting down. They offer a better fit than stock mouthguards but may still lack the comfort and protection of a custom-made mouthguard.
  3. Custom-made mouthguards: Created by your dentist from an impression of your teeth, custom-made mouthguards provide the best fit, comfort, and protection. They are more expensive than other types but offer superior protection and durability.


How should a mouthguard fit?

A properly fitting mouthguard should cover all of your upper teeth and the gums, providing a cushion between the teeth and soft tissues. It should be comfortable to wear, not restrict your breathing or speech, and stay securely in place during physical activity. A custom-made mouthguard from your dentist will provide the best fit and protection.

How do I care for my mouthguard?

To care for your mouthguard:

  1. Rinse it with water before and after each use.
  2. Clean it with a toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste, or mild soap and water.
  3. Store it in a ventilated case to allow air circulation and prevent bacterial growth.
  4. Keep it away from direct sunlight or high temperatures, which can cause it to warp.
  5. Inspect it regularly for signs of wear or damage and replace it as needed.
  6. Bring it to your dental checkups for your dentist to examine.


How often should I replace my mouthguard?

The lifespan of a mouthguard depends on its type, how often it’s used, and if there are changes to your teeth or bite. Generally, mouthguards should be replaced every 6-12 months or when they show signs of wear, such as thinning, cracks, or tears. Children and adolescents may need more frequent replacements due to their changing mouths and growth. It’s important to consult with your dentist about when to replace your mouthguard to ensure optimal protection.
