A bite guard is a fitted device worn over teeth to shield them from harm. A well-fitting bite guard may be particularly vital if you wear braces, have fixed anterior bridgework or just want to protect your teeth from potential trauma.

Bite guards can deter harm to the teeth and/or other settled apparatuses from physical contact. Bite guards can also serve as an obstruction between teeth and cheeks, as well as lips and tongue, inhibiting soft tissue damage.
