Who Needs a Mouth Guard?

You may need a mouth guard if:

  • You grind your teeth in your sleep
  • You participate in recreational activities like skateboarding or mountain biking
  • You have fragile teeth
  • You play contact sports such as football, basketball, wrestling, hockey, or boxing

The Best Mouth Guard for You

There are three main types of mouth guards:

  • Stock mouth guards: These are the products you can find at your local sporting goods store. The pre-formed, plastic mouth guards are bulky and do not provide maximum protection. They can make talking or breathing difficult, inhibiting your ability to play your sport to the fullest. They are also generally uncomfortable and can cut into your gums.
  • Boil and bite mouth guards: While better than stock mouth guards, these products still offer limited protection. Boil and bite guards are made from a thermoplastic material that is moldable after being plunged into boiling water. You can heat your mouth guard and shape it to your specific smile using your tongue and teeth.
  • Custom-fitted mouth protectors: We can design a personalized mouth guard to fit your specific needs. We will take an impression of your teeth and then mold a guard that is well-suited. While a custom fitting is more expensive, it is a worthy investment to protect your smile, ensure comfort, and enforce safety. They are also durable and easy to clean.

If you are concerned about grinding your teeth at night, we may suggest a nocturnal bite plate or a bite splint. These are special products specifically engineered to tackle nighttime teeth grinding.
