However when playing contact sport there is a precaution that should be take to ensure that you maintain your dental heath and don’t risk injuring your mouth or loosing teeth. Mouth guards are a common sporting protective device that are used by many sports people, footballers, basket ballers and boxers to name a few.
There are a number of cheap “one-size-fits-all” style of mouth guards available, but these can actually do more harm than good. A custom fitted mouth guard is made from a mould of your mouth and fits comfortably in place and offers a full protection for your teeth, tongue and mouth.
Snoring can be a problem not just for partners, but the snorer themselves may not realise it is causing them to get broken rest, a lack of oxygen while sleeping and could be damaging their dental health also. Many of the causes for snoring relate to the dental structure and can be fixed. Devices such as plates and guards can help temporarily and over a period of time can train joints and muscles permanently. Sometimes operations to change the jaw structure can also improve the condition.
