Types of Dental Mouth Guards Available

  • Snoring mouth guards– These keep the lower jaw slightly forward to allow free airflow and clear breathing, stopping any obstructions that cause the wearer to snore.
  • Sleep apnea mouth guards– These push the lower jaw and tongue forward to keep the airway open.
  • Sports mouth guards– These high impact dental mouth guards can be worn to prevent teeth from getting damaged when playing sports.
  • Bruxism guards– Wearing a mouth guard for teeth grinding while you sleep will help to keep the top and bottom teeth separated, preventing damage as a result of grinding or clenching.
