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. A mouth guard should be customised to prevent tooth damage.

+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 headaches, ear aches, facial and neck muscle pain, and jaw joint pain.
Night guards are used to treat 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 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. 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, rugby, hockey, basketball, and boxing. 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.

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.

Why a customised mouth guard?

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

Mouth guards that are bought over-the-counter or online, give you a false sense of security as they do not fit securely over all teeth surfaces, nor match your bite. Movement of the mouth guard during impact can cause injuries to the teeth and oral structures.

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 appointments to receive a night guard or sports guard. During the initial visit, our specialist makes an impression of the teeth, together with a bite record. These will be used to create a customised guards 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 guard ensures proper fit and alignment to the shape of your mouth and teeth, giving you and your kids the best protection at rest and at play!
