Mouth Guard

To protect your TMJ and your natural or new restored dentition.

One of the most effective ways to protect your TMJ and your natural or new restored dentition is by using a Mouth Guard for a various reasons.

TMJ is under a constant load and after a night grinding it gets soured and inflamed. Its chronic effect could cause arthrosis of the TMJ by loosing the articulation disc and its components involved in articulating & moving.

Also the dentition suffers an over wear because of the natural chewing in addition to the over night grinding. The use of a mouth guard will protect either your own teeth and your new restorative work.

For the same reason we usually use a case for our phone, we should use a mouth guard to protect our teeth.

“The use of Botox at the Maseter muscle area will relax the muscle at the most critical moments without affecting the proper chewing and this will solve out the problem of over wearing even during the day when we also grind”
