Night Guards are commonly recommended for people suffering from teeth grinding (bruxism) and clenching. This is to prevent their teeth from being damaged by constant unconscious teeth grinding during sleep. Sports guards, on the other hand, are protective devices for the mouth that covers the teeth and the gums to help cushion the blow to the face. They are catered for athletes and for anyone who engages in a lot of hard physical activities.
Their purpose is to act as a mouth protector so that the wearer won’t become susceptible to broken teeth or tooth trauma that can be caused by rigorous physical contacts. Athletes who engage in contact sports such as boxing, football, martial arts, hockey, and basketball usually wear them for the fear of losing one or two permanent teeth.
