TMD & Mouth Guard
A mouthguard 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 mouthguard 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 or sleep apnea.
Depending on the application, it may also be called a mouth protector, mouthpiece, gumshield, gum guard, nightguard, occlusal splint, bite splint or bite plane.
