Custom Mouth Guards
Pre-formed, ready-to-wear mouth guards can be purchased inexpensively at many sporting stores, but they do not always fit well. They can be uncomfortable and interfere with talking and even breathing.
Sporting goods stores also offer semi-custom mouth guards, in which the plastic is heated and then the athlete bites on it while still warm to provide some level of custom fit.
We can make a custom mouth guard by taking an impression of your teeth and then creating a device fitted to your mouth for the highest level of both comfort and protection. A custom fitted mouth guard can be particularly important for athletes who wear braces.
Custom Night Guard/Splints
A thorough evaluation of your symptoms, tooth position and occlusion provides valuable information in the selection of the proper night guard to effectively treat the problem.
Be certain to bring your night guard to each dental appointment where a tooth restoration is planned. This is to ensure the proper fit of your night guard.
