We believe in protection of the teeth as well as correction. Teeth can be subjected to very high forces when we eat and chew and, although the enamel of teeth is the hardest substance in the body, we can place them at great risk of wear if they are grinding against each other excessively.
Mouthguards are a great way of preventing damage sustained in sport and relieving pain in patients who tend to grind their teeth.
Mouthguards at the Neem Tree
For Bruxism (Grinding Teeth)
Because of this common problem, at the Neem Tree we are able to provide you with a fully customised mouthguard which has been carefully moulded and adapted to the shape of your mouth and teeth. The mouthguard acts to protect your teeth and prevent further damage.
In patients who are known to grind their teeth, great stress can be placed on the muscles which control the jaw which can result in muscular facial pain. Mouthguards can absorb the stress put on to the jaws and can often alleviate these symptoms.
At the Neem Tree, we are very protective of our patients’ teeth, so we also provide patients with sports mouthguards to protect the teeth. Sports such as rugby, hockey and boxing are all contact sports which can result in damaged teeth. The sports mouthguards we provide are again fully customised and moulded to the shape of your teeth and mouth to fully protect them during any contact sport.
