A mouthguard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teetharches, lips and gums. A mouthguard is most often used to prevent injury in contact sportsas a treatment for bruxism or TMDor as part of certain dental procedures, such as tooth bleaching or sleep apnea.

Manufactured Afterglow - Steve Hackett - Genesis Revisited II a pre-formed Lucille - The Legends - We Were Rockin´ 1961-1963 in various sizes but with nearly no adjustment to fit the user's mouth. The only adjustment possible is minor trimming with a knife or scissors.
A thermoplastic material manufactured in a pre-formed shape in various sizes that can be adapted to fit more closely to an individual's teeth and gums by heating and molding such as boiling then placing in the mouth. Some are now available that incorporate special fins within the fitting zones which increase retention and give an improved fit over traditional boil and bite mouth types. Guards are usually made of Ethylene-vinyl acetate  commonly known as EVA. Some of the newer technologies offer an alternative, stronger thermo-polymer that allows for lower molding temperatures, below F to prevent burning by scalding hot water.
This is the most popular mouthguard used by amateur and semi-professional sportsmen, providing adequate protection but relatively low comfort in comparison to the custom-made guard. An impression of the user's teeth is used by specialist manufacturers to create a best-fit mouth protector. The impression may be obtained by using a specially designed impression kit that uses dental putty, or from a dentist who will take an impression in dental alginate material.
One company GuardLab is using 3D imaging to create a digital impression. The resulting impression is sent to a lab that makes a guard from the impression. Applying a CE mark without such certification is a criminal offense. Occlusal splints also called bite splints, bite planes, or night guards are removable dental appliances carefully molded to fit the upper or lower arches of teeth.
They are used to protect tooth and restoration surfaces, manage mandibular jaw dysfunction TMDand stabilize the jaw joints during occlusion or create space prior to restoration procedures. People prone to nocturnal bruxismor nighttime clenching, as well as morsicatio buccarum may routinely wear occlusal splints at night.
However, a meta-analysis of occlusal splints used for this purpose concluded "There is not enough evidence to state that the occlusal National Iq Test - Mouthguard / Drongos For Europe - Mouthguard / Drongos For Europe is effective for treating sleep bruxism.
An indication of its use is questionable concerning sleep National Iq Test - Mouthguard / Drongos For Europe - Mouthguard / Drongos For Europe , but there may be some benefit with regard to tooth wear. Occlusal splints are typically made of a heat-cured acrylic resin. Soft acrylic or light cured composite, or vinyl splints may be made more quickly and cheaply, but are not as durable, and are more commonly made for short-term use.
Soft splints are also used for children because normal growth changes the fit of hard splints. They cover all the teeth of the upper or lower arch, but partial coverage is sometimes used.
Occlusal splints are usually used on either the upper or the lower teeth, termed maxillary splints or mandibular splints respectively, but sometimes both types are used at the same time. Maxillary splints are more common, although various situations favor mandibular splints. Stabilizing or Michigan-type occlusal splints are generally flat against the opposing teeth, and help jaw muscle relaxation, while repositioning occlusal splints are used to reposition the jaw to improve occlusion.
The exact origins of the mouthguard are unclear. Most evidence indicates that the concept of a mouthguard was initiated in the sport of boxing. Originally, boxers fashioned rudimentary mouthguards out of cotton, tape, sponge, or small pieces of wood. Boxers clenched the material between their teeth. These boxers had a hard time focusing on the fight and clenching their teeth at the same time. Krause placed strips of a National Iq Test - Mouthguard / Drongos For Europe - Mouthguard / Drongos For Europe rubber resin, gutta-perchaover the maxillary incisors of boxers before they entered the ring.
Philip Krause was an amateur boxer himself and undoubtedly used his device before There have been other claims to the invention of the mouthguard as well. In the early s, Jacob Marks created a custom-fitted mouthguard in London. Carlos, also developed a mouth guard at approximately the same time as Krause. Another dentist from Chicago, E. Allen Franke, also claimed to have made many mouth guards for boxers by McTigue was winning for most of the fight, but a chipped tooth cut his lip, and he was forced to forfeit the match.
From that point on, mouthguards were ruled acceptable and soon became commonplace for all boxers. Clearance Mayer, a dentist and boxing inspector for the New York State Athletic Commissiondescribed how custom mouthguards could be manufactured from impressions using wax and rubber. Steel springs were even recommended to reinforce soft materials. Ina Los Angeles dentist, Rodney O. Lilyquist, made a breakthrough by using transparent acrylic resin to form what he termed an "acrylic splint".
Molded to fit unobtrusively over the upper or lower teeth, the acrylic mouthguard was a distinct improvement over the thick mouthguard worn by boxers. It meant that the athlete could talk in a normal manner while the mouthguard was in place. In the January issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association, the procedure for making and fitting the acrylic mouthguard was described in detail by Dr.
Another early wearer was Frankie Albert, quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. In the s, the American Dental Association ADA began researching mouthguards and soon promoted their benefits to the public.
Byall high school football players in the United States were required to wear mouthguards. Since the introduction of the mouthguard, the number of dental injuries has decreased dramatically. Quiero Decirte - Bobby Pulido - Desvelado have become a standard in many sports. In addition to football, the NCAA currently requires mouthguards in ice hockeyfield hockeyand lacrosse.
The ADA shows that mouthguards are extremely effective in preventing facial injury in contact and non-contact sports.
