Times Where a Custom Mouthguard Could Keep Your Teeth Safe

Posted on 2/10/2020 by Candice
Times Where a Custom Mouthguard Could Keep Your Teeth SafeThe thought of wearing a mouthguard is not always appealing. It is easy to recognize how a mouthguard can protect the teeth, but that does not always mean a person will enjoy wearing one.

The fact is that there are many ways a custom mouthguard can prevent problems with the teeth and gums. When made and used properly, they are not the inconvenience that people think they are and are actually something that is very helpful.

Preventing Trauma

One of the most obvious reasons to wear a mouthguard is when you engage in activities that put the teeth at risk. It is a good idea to use a mouthguard when playing sports that involve physical contact. Even sports where people don't collide could lead to trauma that could damage teeth.

Teeth Grinding

Another reason to turn to a mouthguard is to prevent any damage from teeth grinding. Most people grind their teeth while they are asleep. They are not aware that it happens unless someone tells them, or if the teeth grinding damages their teeth. The mouthguard can help prevent the damage that comes from the stress on the teeth when someone grinds them as they sleep.

Why a Custom Mouthguard?

While it is possible to pick up a generic mouthguard to protect the teeth and they do offer some protection, it is better to get one that is custom fit. Everyone's mouth is a different size. The way their teeth fit in the mouth also varies from one person to the next. The best protection from a mouthguard comes when it fits the teeth properly and the best way to do that is through a custom mouthguard.

It is also important to know that the shape and configuration of your teeth changes over time, so it is a good idea to evaluate whether you need a new custom mouthguard from time to time. Call us and let us help get the process started!
