Benefits Of Wearing Mouthguards

A mouthguard, even a custom-fitted one, can feel foreign and uncomfortable in the mouth. However, no matter how uncomfortable it may seem and how tempted you might feel to stop wearing one, if you have been prescribed to wear a mouthguard, you must. Here’s why.


The most important benefit of wearing a mouthguard is that it offers protection for your teeth, head, lips, tongue and more. Especially during sports, wearing a mouthguard helps cushion the blow from any sudden impact, thereby reducing the chances of damage to your teeth.

Moreover, sometimes, this impact can lead to a concussion as well, but wearing the mouthguard can help protect you from such head injuries.

Helps Prevent Gum Injury

Certain medical conditions, such as teeth grinding or wearing braces, often leads to small cuts on the inside of the cheeks and the gums. This leads to infections and other gum injuries. Wearing a mouthguard can help prevent such problems as it creates a protective layer over the teeth or braces.

Prevents Damage To Orthodontic Appliances

Besides preventing damage from the braces, mouthguards can also help protect the braces itself. In fact, they can help avoid damage to various orthodontic appliances such as dentures, retainers, bands, and more.

Better Sleep

If you do suffer from chronic teeth grinding, snoring, sleep apnea, you can greatly benefit from a mouthguard as it can help sleep better at night. They can comfort your jaw and other symptoms, helping you achieve better sleeping patterns.

Everything considered, the greatest benefit of wearing mouthguards is that it helps you save money on more expensive dental treatments. It’s much more affordable to get a mouthguard than salvage a knocked-out tooth. Therefore, reach out to at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry to get your custom-fitted mouthguards today.
