Whether you’re an adult or a child playing a contact sport, a mouthguard must always be worn to protect the teeth and mouth from injury.
A professionally made, custom-fit mouthguard is the only way to ensure maximum protection. Multiple layers and a range of thicknesses can be applied to protect the teeth, to suit the potential level of impact.
Mouthguards can be made in as little as a week and you can choose from a range of different colours and patterns – and that includes team colours too!
What is a nightguard and splint?
A nightguard is a solid, hard plastic splint worn between the upper and lower teeth at night to stop the teeth touching. Their main purpose is to stop the tooth wear caused by years of jaw clenching and nighttime grinding. If left untreated, continued tooth wear can make the teeth look short, makes them sensitive and more prone to fracture.
Nightguards are custom made to suit your bite and after an initial adjustment period can be quite comfortable to wear while you sleep. Over time, the facial muscles learn to relax and some people even report getting a better night’s sleep.
For your convenience, Primary Dental offer extended appointment hours during the week as well as on Saturday.
