How We Customize Mouth Guards for Your Specific Needs
Posted on 9/21/2021 by Candice
Mouthguards cover your teeth and gums to protect them from physical damage. Also, custom-fitted mouthguards help protect your teeth better than those bought over the counter. This is why we recommend and install customized mouthguards in our offices. The process of customizing mouthguards is simple and straightforward, with very few steps involved.
The Customization Process
Using customized mouthguards offers more protection against damage. You might choose to use custom-fitted mouthguards to protect your teeth when playing or against teeth grinding. We will create these mouthguards depending on how you intend to use them. We create custom-fit mouthguards from a thermoplastic material that is based on a mold we take of your mouth and teeth. We then customize these mouthguards to fit your shape and preferences.
In most cases, we use an impression or mold of your teeth to create a perfect fitting mouthguard that you will be comfortable with. Wearing a poorly fitting mouthguard is not only uncomfortable but also risky. Furthermore, it will not provide effective protection against physical damage. Our custom mouthguard is specifically made for your needs, whether you want to use it when sleeping or for a sports competition. Getting a customized mouthguard is beneficial because it provides maximum protection against damage.
Depending on how much you grind and clench your teeth, we can also adjust that mouthguard's thickness. This will help achieve a perfect-fitting mouthguard that will not need frequent adjustments. In most cases, we typically fit mouthguards to your upper teeth. This is because upper teeth are more more likely to get damaged when playing physical spots. Furthermore, grinding will also exert more pressure on your upper teeth. However, we can also make custom mouthguards for your lower teeth. This helps maximize protection. Therefore, it is helpful to get custom mouthguards if you want to protect your teeth and gums against physical damage. Contact our offices for more information on custom mouthguards.
