What Types of Ailments Can a Mouthguard Protect You From?

Posted on 12/7/2020 by Beautiful Smiles Office
What Types of Ailments Can a Mouthguard Protect You From?The primary function of a dental mouthguard is to protect your teeth from ailments related to your oral health. Most of these ailments are often caused by not taking good care of your teeth; this is why you have to use a mouthguard to protect your teeth from damage. The following are some of the ailments a dental mouthguard can help prevent.

Teeth Grinding and Clenching

Most people grind and clench their teeth unconsciously. Most likely, they only notice that they have signs of teeth grinding when it's too late. Teeth grinding can expose your pulp and cause tooth sensitivity. Wearing a mouthguard at night before going to sleep will help protect your teeth. It will also increase comfort and allow you to enjoy your rest. Bruxism can cause stress, misaligned teeth, and sleep disorder. Avoiding excessive smoking, and increased intake of caffeine will also help reduce the chances of teeth grinding during your sleep.

Mouthguards for TMJ Problems

If you feel some jaw pain when speaking, yawning, and eating, you may have a temporomandibular joint problem. These problems often stem from misaligned teeth, accidents, and arthritis. Muscle tension and stress can also cause severe pain. If you do not use a mouthguard, you will likely experience excruciating pain in your jaw joint area. Custom mouthguards will help relieve the tension and stress and reduce TMJ pain.

Mouthguards for Sleeping Disorders

Mouthguards can help alleviate sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, which affect your breathing when you are sleeping. Sleep apnea results in poor sleeping habits, which makes it difficult for one to concentrate. Most people who suffer from sleep apnea are not able to stay alert long enough to drive. However, with a mouthguard, you will be able to sleep comfortably and allow you to breathe consistently. Visit our offices and get a custom-designed mouthguard based on your condition.
