Teeth grinding can erode enamel and lead to jaw pain, while sports impacts make you vulnerable to fractures and tooth loss.

At Peerzada Smiles, we offer tailored mouthguards as your shield against these threats. Our custom mouthguards absorb and distribute impacts, reduce the risk of dental trauma, and cushion grinding forces to alleviate discomfort.

What is a Mouthguard?

A mouthguard is a dental device crafted to shield your teeth, gums, and sometimes even your lips and jaw from potential injuries. There are two types that serve different purposes:

  • Sports Mouthguards: They’re used by athletes and active individuals in sports like football, basketball, or boxing, where facial and dental injuries are a real concern.
  • Night Guards: Perfect for those battling teeth clenching during slumber, also known as bruxism. Night guards shield your teeth from grinding forces and provide relief from jaw pain and headaches.

How Often Should I Replace My Mouthguard?

The durability of mouthguards depends on what they’re made of, what you use them for, and how often you need them. Usually, you need to replace sports mouthguards at least once a season, or sooner if they show signs of wear and tear, like cracks or a compromised fit.

On the other hand, night guards used for teeth grinding need replacement when they become visibly worn or lose their original shape, which usually happens after several months of use.

How Do I Clean and Maintain My Mouthguard?

Proper care and maintenance extend the lifespan of your mouthguard and maintain its hygiene. Here's a quick bulleted list of steps to follow:

  • Rinse your mouthguard with cold water before and after each use.
  • Brush it with a brush and toothpaste or clean it with a mild, dentist-approved solution.
  • Store it in a ventilated container to prevent bacterial growth.
  • Keep it away from high temperatures or direct sunlight to avoid deformation.
