These are small plastic appliances, tailor made for you to protect your teeth from impact or trauma.
A biteguard is a soft removable plastic appliance, designed for people who grind or clench their teeth together. They are normally transparent in colour.
Sport Gumshields are made from a harder plastic material in order to protect your mouth from traumatic impacts. These can be made in all sorts of colours and patterns.

I grind my teeth together and this causes a lot of headaches. Can a biteguard cure my problem?
