Mouth Guards | Clenching and Grinding

Mouth guards are needed to prevent clenching and grinding that can cause your jaw muscles to feel stiff. Custom-made mouth guards from Axiom Dental.


Mouth Guards for Clenching and GrindingWithout a mouth guard, tenderness in the jaw joint can radiate to the head, neck and shoulder area. People who clench and grind can fracture and wear their teeth at a much faster rate causing sensitivity, pain and change in the position of how their jaws fit. Custom fabricated hard mouth guards protect your teeth from wearing away and relieve head, neck, jaw joint and shoulder pain caused as a result of clenching and grinding.

A mouth guard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums. A mouth guard is most often used to prevent injury in contact sports, as a treatment for bruxism or TMD, or as part of certain dental procedures, such as tooth bleaching. Depending on application, it may also be called a mouth protector, mouth piece, gum shield, gumguard, nightguard, occlusal splint, bite splint, or bite plane.
