About custom nightguards and sports mouthguards

What are custom nightguards and sports mouthguards

Two main types of mouthguards are custom-fitted by dentists – nightguards to counter the effects of teeth grinding while asleep (night bruxism), and sports mouthguards to protect teeth from injury during sports.

Both types of mouth shields provide crucial dental protection but they’re not interchangeable. In other words, you can’t use your sports mouthguard for bruxism, and vice versa.

Although nightguards and sports mouthguards have similar functions, they’re made from different designs and materials and serve different purposes. Mouthguards for sports are soft and rubbery, while nightguards are made of hard, durable plastic.

Benefits of nightguards

What are the benefits?

Many people grind their teeth to some extent, but bruxism is a medical condition – a sleep disorder – in which you grind or clench your teeth excessively.

It occurs most often during sleep and is typically an involuntary, instinctive reaction to something like stress or a bad dream.

Nocturnal bruxism may also be related to sleep apnoea, characterised by heavy snoring, or may result as a side effect of medications like anti-depressants.

A nightguard is one of the most common types of treatment for sleep bruxism. It provides support for your jaw and creates a barrier between your upper and lower teeth to prevent contact.

Benefits of sports mouthguards

Many sports can put you at risk of dental injury, particularly contact sports. The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends wearing a mouthguard for any sports activity where collision is likely, including training as well as games.

Sports in which a mouthguard can be particularly beneficial include:

  • Australian football
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Hockey
  • Rugby
  • Soccer

We help patients protect their smile

You can get off-the-shelf nightguards and sports mouthguards from various stores but mouth shields from dentists provide better protection and fit more comfortably because they’re custom made from an impression of your teeth.
