DID YOU KNOW THAT STORE-BOUGHT MOUTHGUARDS AREN’T THE BEST FOR YOUR TEETH?

Dentist Westmont

If you’ve stepped into a sporting goods store, you might’ve noticed several store-bought sports guard options for sale. While we applaud the intent of protecting your teeth, pre-made mouthguards (such as the boil-and-bite style) might do more harm than good.

Pre-made sports guards tend to slip because they are not designed to fit your unique smile. If they slip out of place, you can damage your teeth just as if you aren’t wearing one.

HOW IT WORKS

Obtaining a custom-fit mouthguard is a simple process, and you can receive one within a few weeks:

BEFORE

The first step in creating custom-fitted sport guards is capturing a digital impression with our advanced digital scanner.

DURING

Once we obtain your unique digital impressions, we’ll send these off to our dental lab for fabrication.

AFTER

When they come back to our Westmont dental office, we’ll ask you to come back in for a fitting so that we can ensure that your new sport guard fits comfortably.

WHAT ISSUES CAN SPORT MOUTHGUARDS SOLVE?

Sports are incredibly beneficial for cardiovascular health and can be fun. However, they put athletes at much greater risk for dental accidents. You protect yourself from broken teeth, jaw injuries, punctured lips and cheeks, and concussions when wearing sport mouth guards.

Can I wear my sport mouthguard at night?

We do not recommend wearing sport guards as you sleep. Sleep mouth guards serve a different purpose than sport guards, so they are made differently.

 How often should I replace my mouth guards (sport)?

As a rule of thumb, we suggest replacing them every six months or when the mouth guard shows signs of wear and tear. A tight fit is essential to performance.
