Mouthguards are fairly simple in design but produce a wide range of benefits for oral health. Most often, when you think about mouthguards, you think about athletic mouthguards and the benefits produced when worn during sports. However, mouthguards can also be used to aid certain conditions, such as disorders of the temporomandibular joint. Mouthguards are also effective for relieving the symptoms of bruxism.
