Dr. Alla Brown and Dr. Amanda Newberry offer custom night guards and custom sports mouthguards made of special plastic, molded to fit the exact shape and contour of your teeth. These oral appliances protect your teeth from tooth grinding, mouth trauma from hits to the face, and more. Protect your young athlete’s mouth with the most effective mouthguards possible. Only a dental professional can offer superior comfort and support in a mouthguard. Retail stores and other sources only sell standard sizes that you need to mold yourself. These do not offer the custom-fit that is needed to protect your family.
Children’s Custom Sports Mouthguards
Mouthguards are commonly worn during physical activity to protect the teeth from trauma. Sports like boxing, football and basketball often require the participant to wear a mouthguard. The mouthguard not only protects the teeth from forceful blows, but also the soft tissues such as the tongue, lip, or cheek lining. They are susceptible to be bitten during certain maneuvers.
Custom sports mouthguards are not a substitute for night guards, or other corrective oral appliances. They should only be worn during physical play and short periods of time. Maintenance is easy. Rinse and store away in a dry place after use. Mouthguards should be taken to the dentist at least once a year for a quick inspection. This will ensure they stay effective for yeas to come.
Custom Teeth Grinding Night Guards
Night guards, as the name indicates, are worn at night while you sleep. These are commonly worn to prevent teeth grinding or teeth clenching. A night guard may be incorporated into a TMJ treatment plan to protect your teeth from damage. The night guard can help stabilize the bite during sleep and alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorders.
Custom Sports Mouthguards Process
Your dentist will help you decide if a mouthguard or night guard is right for you. First, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. This will be used to create a custom fit guard that fits perfectly and is more comfortable than store-bought options. You may be able to choose from a variety of colors and styles. We use only the best brands.
How Long Do They Last?
Most mouthguards and night guards last between 3 to 10 years. For younger patients, guards may need to be replaced more frequently to accommodate the growth of new teeth.
