High-impact sports such as hockey or boxing can result in injury to your mouth and teeth, but did you know that your teeth can be damaged in any active sport?

Many people grind their teeth at night. This condition, called bruxism, gradually wears down your teeth, causing permanent damage to your enamel. Over time this damage can result in your teeth being so badly damaged they can be lost. A bite appliance can hold your teeth and jaws in place while you sleep, preventing you from grinding them.
