MOUTH GUARD

Protect your teeth from injury with our mouth guards
Mouth guards are protective coverings worn over your teeth to protect them from injury during teeth grinding or clenching when you sleep, and during sports.

If you grind your teeth during sleep, a special mouth guard-type of dental application called a nocturnal bite plate or bite plate or bite splint, can be customized to prevent tooth damage.

A good mouth guard should provide you with comfort, resist wear or tear, is durable and easily maintained. It should not hinder your breathing and speech function.

Protect your teeth from injury with our mouth guards
At The Dental Studio Singapore, we provide custom-made mouth guards for adults and children. It typically takes two dentist appointments to receive a night guard or teeth guard for sports. During the initial visit, our specialist makes an impression of the teeth with a bite record. These will be used to create a customised night or sports guard that allows for proper teeth alignment. During the second appointment, the patient gives the mouth guard a test run and the dentist makes any necessary adjustments.
Having a professional custom made teeth guard for your mouth ensures proper fit and alignment to the shape of your mouth and teeth, given you and your kids the best protection at rest and at play!

+TEETH GRINDING

Get full protection against teeth grinding & clenching during sleep
Many individuals are unaware that they grind or clench their teeth at night, but a lot of damage can occur. Symptoms associated with teeth grinding include a headache, stress, anxiety, ear aches, and jaw joint pain.
Night guards are used to treating bruxism (teeth grinding) and clenching.  The night guard fits over either the upper or the lower teeth, creating a cushion between them and absorbing the impact of the grinding or clenching. Night guards can help reduce enamel damage, jaw joint inflammation, and irritation to the gums. Overall, most night guard wearers report they have less pain and sleep better.

+SPORTS

Mouth guards for sports primarily act as a shock absorber, which is a crucial component of concussion prevention. These dental mouth guards protect children and adult’s teeth and jaw joints from the trauma that can be sustained while playing contact and collision sports such as football, cricket boxing, hockey, basketball, MMA, rugby. However, even those participating in non contact sports like gymnastics and any recreational activity that carries a risk of contact with the face such as skateboarding, and mountain biking, would benefit from wearing a protective mouth guard to prevent risk of injury to the mouth.

Accidents can happen during any physical activity and a mouth guard ultimately helps to absorb the shock experienced to the face, thereby reducing the risk of teeth injuries such as a chipped tooth, tooth loss, soft tissue injury and in severe cases, jaw injuries.
