People who lead an active lifestyle and take part in contact sports and activities can reduce the risk of injury to their teeth and oral structures by wearing a custom dental mouth guard from the office of Modern Day Smiles. Mouth guards can also be used while sleeping for those who suffer from bruxism, the clenching and grinding of teeth during sleep. Our custom-made mouth guards are much more comfortable, well-fitting and lighter than store-bought mouth guards, increasing the odds of patients consistently wearing them to protect their oral health.
A good quality mouth guard has the following characteristics:
- It is not bulky
- It is tasteless and odorless
- It is resistant to wear and tear
- It is comfortable to wear as well as protective
- It has great retention
- It has sufficient thickness in critical areas
Custom-made dental mouth guards remain the ideal choice of most people as they are designed for a perfect fit by taking impressions of a patient’s teeth. These lightweight, high-quality appliances are comfortable and allow normal breathing and speaking.
A mouth guard is an essential piece of equipment for any athlete. It can prevent injury and damage to your teeth, jaw, gums and facial structures, thereby preventing the need for extensive restorative dental treatments later.
