Dental Mouth Guards in Tower Hamlets

Whether you play contact sports and need something to protect your mouth or you tend to grind your teeth at night, gum shields – also referred to as mouth guards – are the perfect solution. Read on to find out everything you need to know about custom-made gum shields.

Night Mouth Guards

Individuals who suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding, find that a night guard can help achieve a better quality of sleep, as well as prevent sore and tense muscles around the jaw from constant biting during the night.

A night guard can also protect the teeth from wearing down due to grinding and pressure, which could otherwise cause thinning of the enamel and even make the teeth more prone to decay over time.

Sports Bite Guards

A Sports Bite Guard is beneficial to athletes who participate in high-contact sports. It is not uncommon to hear of athletes who have sustained serious damage to the teeth and tissues of the mouth that could have been easily prevented or minimised by a mouth guard. Rugby, football and hockey are some examples of sports in which participants should wear mouth protection.

What are the benefits of wearing Mouth Guards?

Mouth Guards have two main functions:

1. Providing protection to players of contact sports like football, hockey and rugby, in which there is a risk of injury to the facial tissue.

2. Alleviating the symptoms of bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding. It happens involuntarily, most often during sleep.

how are they made?

To make your custom mouth guard, we take highly precise measurements of your mouth to ensure that it fits securely over your teeth and gums. While any type of gum shield will offer some level of protection to the wearer, custom gum shields – in other words, those fitted by a dentist – are far more effective.
