Custom Mouthguards in Grapevine
While all physical activities like running, wrestling, or sports are designed to work your body, many people don’t realize the strain these activities can put on your teeth, mouth, and jaw. If you’ve ever seen an athlete wearing a custom-fitted mouth guard, now you know why. A mouth guard doesn’t just protect your teeth from being knocked out; it also protects against the harmful effects of clenching or grinding. Mouthguards can also relieve stress on the jaw and even enhance your athletic performance.
Mouthguards For Sleep and Study
But you don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy the benefits of a custom mouthguard. Many people unconsciously clench or grind their teeth during periods of intense study or concentration, or during sleep. So whether you’re engaged in heavy contact sports, hitting the books, or just snoozing, our custom mouthguards at Mason Dental could be a great investment.
Benefits of Mouthguards
Mouthguards benefit your oral and general health in the following ways:
- Increased biting strength.
- Increased reaction time.
- Higher endurance.
- Reduced stress.
- Reduced risk of traumatic injury to the mouth.
Clenching in particular can be harmful even to your mental state. It releases a hormone called cortisol, which causes stress and fatigue. These mouthguards are specially designed to absorb energy and prevent the harmful effects of excessive clenching and grinding. Mouthguards are custom-made for each patient, tailored to fit your individual mouth and performance needs.
