A mouthguard (also known as a mouth protector, mouth piece, gumshield or nightguard ) 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. Mouthguards are 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.

A night guard is a simple and affordable solution to protectect your teeth and jaw from the damaging effects of bruxism (clenching & grinding). A night guard is a custom-made horseshoe-shaped (or retainer-like), plastic, appliance with shallow borders. It is designed to keep the upper and lower teeth from touching, and can be worn on either the top or bottom teeth. When properly made, a night guard can help reduce clenching, grinding, and TMJ problems by helping to relax the muscles in the jaw. Severe clenching and grinding (bruxism) can cause jaw pain, tense muscles, headaches, and excessive wear on the teeth.
