Our Professional Mouthguards Outperform Store-Bought Protection
There’s one thing to keep in mind when you’re shopping for mouth protection – you get what you pay for. It may seem cheaper to opt for a store-bought guard that you can take out of the package and use right away, or even to go with a “boil-and-bite” mouthguard.
However, over-the-counter mouthpieces don’t provide the custom fit that our professional mouthguards do. As a result, they also won’t protect your teeth as well. Plus, a mouthguard obtained through your dentist will hold up better and last longer than a mass-produced one.
We can have two different types of mouthguards made for you:
- Athletic Mouthguards – Did you know the American Dental Association says that athletes who don’t wear mouth protection are 60 times more likely to suffer dental damage than those who do? That’s why it’s so important to wear an athletic mouthguard when playing any sport where there is physical contact, a flying object, running, jumping, or frequent changes in direction.
- Night Guards – Many people grind their teeth during sleep and are not even aware of it. Left untreated, teeth grinding (known as bruxism) can damage your tooth enamel. Eventually you may need dental work such as tooth bonding or a new crown to repair the damage. A night guard will keep your teeth apart and help prevent damage to your enamel.
