A Mouthguard can make an enormous difference in your oral health and improve the quality of your sleep.
Custom Mouth Guards
What is a Mouthguard?
Simply put, a Mouthguard is an appliance made to cover your teeth. Most adults wear a mouthguard at night to relieve bruxism (teeth grinding). A mouthguard protects the teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue from damage that can occur with nighttime clenching and grinding. In other cases, children, teens, and adults wear mouthguards to protect their teeth during contact sports or activities with a high risk of falling or facial trauma, like skating, gymnastics, or cycling.
Why get a Custom Mouthguard?
Mouthguards come in various shapes and sizes and are widely available online, at sporting goods stores, and at pharmacies. These types of mouthguards are either one-size-fits-all (not at all customizable) or “boil and bite” (to conform to your teeth). Both of these solutions are inexpensive, but can present problems, especially for anyone who uses their mouthguard on a daily or nightly basis. Store-bought mouthguards offer limited protection, which is better than nothing, but are not usually the best or most reliable way to protect your teeth. The only way to be sure you are getting the right kind of protection for your teeth and mouth is to get a custom-made mouthguard from a dental professional.
