Nightguards and Sportsguards

Nightguards and Sportsguards

We firmly believe in the principle of ‘prevention is better than cure’, which is coincidentally also the premise of these mouthguards! As a safeguard against conditions such as Bruxism and possible dangers while suffering an injury while at play, these mouthguards are effective means of prevention.

Nightguards and Bruxism

If you find yourself constantly dealing with  jaw pain  and some continual headache, especially during the mornings, then you have some form of grinding bruxism. This pain that meets you every morning is the result of the long hours of clenching and grinding your teeth at night. There’s a strong chance that you aren’t even aware of this habit. It’s a problem that must be addressed with diligence.

If the routine morning headache, earache, and jaw pain weren’t bad enough, untreated Bruxism is an invitation to other dangerous realities such as chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. If that ensues, you will need more than one dental procedure to get back to normality.

The solution to the condition is a simple nightguard. The nightguard prevents your teeth from grinding and thus reduces the impact grinding has on your long-term well-being.


All sportspersons, regardless of the level at which they play their sports, are prone to injuries. Sports injuries are complicated and there’s no way of predicting the area or portion of your mouth that will be impacted. Sportsguards offer much-needed protection to your upper teeth, reducing your chances of suffering broken teeth, cut lips, and other possible damage that your mouth might suffer at the hands of a blow or a fall while engaging in immersive sports.
