Mouth guard that may help parkinson’s disease

I had a patient question a article he read that suggested a mouth guard of some sort could help his Parkinson’s symptoms. I have done some looking online and have not found any good answers. Has anyone heard of this? If so what kind of mouth guard is it?

I have read that mouthguards may be advantageous to Parkinson’s patients. I’m not aware of a specific kind of mouthguard, just one that is fabricated by a dentist/lab who is trained in treating TMD and jaw misalignment. A mouthguard can protect the teeth from tremors, bruxism, and TMJ pain that may occur. A mouthguard may also protect the cheeks from being bitten.
