How are custom mouthguards made?
If you would like a durable, custom mouthguard or nightguard, impressions of your teeth will have to be taken. Taking dental impressions is quick and easy, and they can be done at the end of a routine dental visit, or we can schedule a quick additional appointment for you. Once your impressions have been sent off to the lab, it will be about a week or two before we get your custom oral appliance back. A short appointment will be scheduled so you can come into our office and try on your mouthguard. Once we ensure that it fits well, you’ll be free to take it home and begin using it!
Do I need a custom athletic mouthguard or nightguard?
For some patients, a one-size-fits-all oral appliance is all they need to protect their smiles. For others, like patients who regularly participate in aggressive sports or frequently grind their teeth at night, getting a custom oral appliance is an excellent investment. If you are unsure whether or not you grind your teeth often enough to get a custom nightguard, we can assess your teeth and gums and evaluate your symptoms to help you decide. Protecting your teeth and gums is always better than having to repair dental damage.
