Mouthguards are able to perform a number of tasks nowadays. From providing that extra edge in sport to assisting with the issue of teeth grinding, mouthguards can make a marked difference to the lives of countless individuals. Mouthguards are also of excellent use in the protection of teeth, which, if not properly protected could incur severe damage and require emergency dental treatment. At Cabinteely Dental Care, we offer patients a selection of mouthguards to choose from.
Designed for those have a tendency to grind their teeth, this mouthguard is worn by the patient when they are asleep. Wearing a Night Guard not only allows the person to sleep safely but also ensures that the jaw muscles will not deteriorate as a result of this affliction.
If you play sports like bowls and croquet then you are unlikely to require this type of treatment, but for those who partake in aggressive, contact sports this is an ideal form of dental treatment. Sports guards literally provide a cushion around the teeth, so that if you get hit by a burly individual your teeth are going to be securely protected.
Professionally made IRFU standard sportsguards are available at Cabinteely Dental Care from €50. Just in time for back to school sports!

It is also advised that you wear the retainer for around four hours when you are awake.
