Custom Mouthguards Protect Your Pearly Whites

Taking care of your teeth is essential for a healthy smile. In certain situations, using a mouthguard can help protect your teeth from harm. We offer two main types of mouthguards:

  • Athletic Mouthguards – If you participate in sports or physical activities, wearing an athletic mouthguard is crucial. Athletic mouthguards are specially designed to absorb impact and protect your teeth, gums, and jaw during contact sports like football, basketball, and hockey. They act as a cushion, reducing the risk of tooth fractures, knocked-out teeth, and other oral injuries. Always remember to wear your mouthguard during all practices and games to ensure maximum protection.
  • Teeth Grinding Mouthguards – Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common condition that often occurs during sleep. Grinding or clenching your teeth can lead to tooth damage, jaw pain, and headaches. Teeth grinding mouthguards, also called night guards or occlusal splints, are custom-made devices that you wear while sleeping. They create a barrier between your upper and lower teeth, preventing them from grinding against each other. These mouthguards help reduce tooth wear, alleviate jaw pain, and promote a better night’s sleep.

Common Questions About Mouthguards

Why are mouthguards important?

Mouthguards can serve several important functions, including protecting your teeth, gums, and jaw while playing sports and preventing you from grinding your teeth at night. In either case, a mouthguard created by your dentist is the best way to ensure a custom, comfortable fit and that it’s made of high-quality, durable material.

How are mouthguards made?

For any oral appliance to fit well and work effectively, it needs to be customized to the precise measurements of your mouth. Athletes who buy mass-produced guards from a sporting goods store will never find one that is sized comfortably or appropriately enough to provide full coverage and protection. We can create a custom-made mouthguard that allows you to move, breathe, and communicate easily while keeping your smile safe.

Which mouthguards work best?

A mouthguard that is custom designed just for your mouth will always outperform one that’s bought off the shelf. It will provide better protection for your teeth against injury, fit better, feel more comfortable, and last longer than an over-the-counter appliance. For this reason, we always recommend that our patients come to us to get a mouthguard.
