Bruxism can even cause a root fracture below the gum line, requiring a root canal and crown to restore the damaged tooth.
When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouth guard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age. While collision and contact sports, such as boxing, are higher-risk sports for the mouth, you can experience a dental injury in non-contact activities too, such as gymnastics and skating.
The best mouth guard is one that has been custom made for your mouth by your dentist. However, if you can't afford a custom-fitted mouth guard, you should still wear a stock mouth guard or a boil-and-bite mouth guard from the drugstore.
