Benefits of a Custom Mouth Guard

Posted on 2/17/2017 by Office - Boone DMD

When you want to really protect your teeth, getting a custom mouth guard is going to provide you with a better outcome than any old mouth guard you get from a drug store. It forms to your teeth, it is specially designed for your mouth, and it was created with your specific needs in mind.

If you do any type of contact sport that requires a mouth guard, snore or have sleep apnea, or if you clench or grind your teeth, then you should be speaking with your dentist about a custom mouth guard right away.

Getting a Custom Mouth Guard is Easy and Quick

With the fact that a custom mouth guard is able to protect your mouth much better than a standard mouth guard can, you may expect the process to be slow and daunting. Thankfully, it is not.

You can go to your dentist's office and start the process now, and get your mouth guard in under two weeks in nearly all cases. Depending on what kind of mouth guard you need, you can often get it in much less time than that, too.

You will go in, have a mold made of your mouth, and then a casting will be created of your teeth. That casting will be used to make a mouth guard that suctions to your teeth and forms to each of the nuances of your mouth. That way, no matter what need you have, you are sure to have a mouth guard that can be protected and safe for you.

When you want to be able to take care of your mouth, using a mouth guard can be a great way to help. However, just using a boil and bite mouth guard is not going to give you the protection you need. Contact our office for more information on custom mouth guards today!
