Make a Custom Mouthguard Part of Your Oral Care Routine

Are you involved in sports or suffer from teeth grinding? Don’t let your teeth take a hit! Custom mouthguards offer essential protection for your teeth and jaw. Whether you’re an athlete or dealing with teeth grinding, our custom-made mouthguards can safeguard your smile and provide comfort. Here are some benefits of athletic mouthguards:

  • Shock Absorption – Athletic mouthguards help absorb impact and distribute forces, protecting your teeth and jaw from injuries during sports activities.
  • Prevents Tooth Fractures – Wearing a mouthguard reduces the risk of tooth fractures and chipping caused by sudden impacts or collisions.
  • Minimizes Soft Tissue Injuries – By providing a barrier between your teeth and soft tissues, mouthguards minimize the chances of cuts, bruises, and damage to your lips, tongue, and cheeks.
  • Reduces Risk of Concussions – Some studies suggest that properly fitted professional mouthguards may help reduce the risk of concussions by acting as a shock absorber for your jaw.

A bruxism (teeth grinding) mouthguard offers many benefits as well:

  • Prevents Teeth Grinding Damage – Bruxism mouthguards, also known as night guards, protect your teeth from the harmful effects of grinding and clenching during sleep.
  • Relieves Jaw Pain – By creating a cushioning effect, our custom mouthguards help alleviate jaw pain, headaches, and muscle tension caused by bruxism. You won’t wake up with a sore jaw.
  • Protects Tooth Enamel – Bruxism can wear down tooth enamel over time, leading to sensitivity and damage that may require repair. Wearing a mouthguard provides a protective barrier, preserving your enamel.
  • Promotes Better Sleep – Bruxism mouthguards can improve your sleep quality by reducing disruptive grinding noises and allowing your jaw muscles to relax.

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. Using digital impressions, we can create a 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. It will also 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.
