What Is a Mouth Guard?

 

A mouth guard acts as a safeguard for your oral cavity, helping to prevent injuries that could have lasting impacts on your dental health.

 

Our custom-designed mouth guards are crafted from a durable, lightweight material that ensures comfort without hindering your ability to speak or breathe.

Who Should Consider a Mouth Guard?

 

Protecting your smile is crucial, especially when engaging in contact sports or other high-energy activities. Mouth guards are essential protective gear that help shield your teeth from potential injuries, such as chips or complete dislodgements.

Additionally, individuals suffering from sleep apnea or habitual snoring may find that a mouth guard beneficially adjusts the jaw positioning to facilitate better airflow. Whether you’re on the sports field or preparing for sleep, a mouth guard plays a pivotal role in maintaining a healthier, more joyful smile.

 

What Are Night Guards?

 

Night guards are essential for those who experience bruxism, a condition characterized by involuntary nightly teeth grinding and clenching. Left untreated, bruxism can cause tooth fractures, breakages, and even chronic headaches or jaw pain. Our night guards are tailor-made using advanced 3-D printing technology to ensure precise fit and effective protection.

 

Exploring Types of Dental Mouth Guards

 

Mouth guards come in 3 main forms:

 

  • Stock Mouthguards. Ready-to-use right out of the package, these mouthguards are the most affordable option and are available at most sporting goods stores and pharmacies. However, they come in a one-size-fits-all design, which means they can’t be adjusted for a better fit. They tend to be bulky, making it difficult to talk and breathe, and they offer only minimal protection.

  • Boil and Bite Mouthguards. Available at sporting goods stores and pharmacies, these mouthguards offer a better fit than stock versions. To mold them, you first soften the mouthguard in hot water, then place it in your mouth and use your fingers and tongue to shape it around your teeth.

  • Custom-Fitted Mouthguards. Made specifically for you in a dental office or professional dental lab, these mouthguards provide the best fit. Your dentist takes an impression of your teeth and then uses special materials to create a mouthguard perfectly molded to your mouth. Although they are the most expensive option, they offer the best comfort and protection.

Common Questions About Mouth Guards

How long do mouth guards last?

The lifespan of a mouth guard depends on how often you wear it and how well you take care of it. With good maintenance, a custom-made mouth guard can last for several years, usually between 2-5 years. It’s important to regularly check your mouth guard for any signs of wear such as cracks or tears. Make sure to bring it to your dental checkups so your dentist can inspect it.

 

On the other hand, mouth guards bought from stores typically don’t last as long. You might find yourself replacing them a few times a year due to wear and tear. For children and teenagers, who are still growing, replacements may be needed even more frequently as their teeth and mouth structure change.

Can I wear a mouth guard if I have implants?

Absolutely! A mouth guard is not only great for protecting your teeth but also essential for safeguarding dental implants, and other dental restorations such as crowns and bridges. For those with implants, a custom-fitted mouth guard is recommended. These are specifically designed to accommodate the unique contours of your implants, ensuring optimal protection.

How long does it take to get a mouth guard?

It takes approximately one to two weeks to create a custom mouth guard.
