Mouthguards are made to protect your teeth in a variety of situations. If you play sports or grind your teeth, discuss with your dentist whether you need a mouthguard. Vogue Dental Studios offers a range of mouthguards for different situations, all providing daily protection.
We highly recommend for anyone who plays a contact sport - adults and children - to invest in a sports mouthguard. Certain non-contact sports may also necessitate a mouthguard, such as the vibrations experienced during moutainbiking or the hard clenching when weight lifting. If you are frequently in a situation where you may receive trauma around the mouth area, speak with us about mouthguards.
Clenching and grinding is another common reason to require a mouthguard (also called a splint). Excessive nighttime grinding may eventually lead to broken, chipped or uneven teeth. A mouthguard will protect your teeth from further damage and longer preserve your smile. In this case, the mouthguard is commonly worn during sleep but may also be worn during the day if you find yourself clenching as a habit.
If you have ever had orthodontic treatment, chances are your dentist has already recommended a retainer or splint to keep your teeth in position. If you've had orthodontic treatment with us, we will always provide an aftercare retainer for both your top and bottom arches. Our teeth do have muscle memory and like to return to their original positions. So to avoid going through the straightening process again, it's best to wear a retainer consistently to maintain the corrected positions.
