What is a Dental Mouth (Night) Guard?
A dental mouth guard is a device that will generally fit over your upper teeth, protecting your teeth and gums and cushioning your jaws against any blows.
It can be a good idea to consider a mouth, night guard if you enjoy playing contact sports or certain non-contact sports where there is a risk you could have a mouth injury.
Every year, thousands of people will suffer from some sort of sports related injury which can result in chipped or broken teeth, or even tooth loss.
A properly fitting mouth, night guard can reduce this risk, as well as the risk of injury to your jaws. Dental injuries can be costly to correct and over a lifetime these expenses can easily add up to thousands of dollars. A dental mouth, night guard is a very easy and inexpensive way to protect your teeth and jaws.
Custom Made Mouth (Night) Guard
It is possible to buy stock mouth, night guards very cheaply over-the-counter in your local drugstore or online. While this might be tempting, these standard sized mouth guards offer minimal protection at best and they tend to be very uncomfortable to wear.
Some are called ‘boil and bite’ mouth guards that can be partially adapted to fit a little better after first being softened in hot water. However the resulting fit is likely to be quite poor and these mouth, night guards can feel bulky to wear.
Custom Fitted Mouth (Night) Guards
Custom-fitted mouth, night guards are made to provide maximum protection during your chosen sport and they are thickened in critical areas. Our mouth, night guards are comfortable to wear and are made from a strong tear-resistant material that is completely odorless and tasteless.
The procedure to make your custom mouth, night guard is non-invasive as all we will need to do is take a dental impression of your mouth. This is sent to our laboratory so your mouth guard can be made to our exact specifications and design.
Your new mouth, night guard is easy to care for as you simply need to rinse it after each use to ensure it is thoroughly clean, before storing it in the container provided. Make sure you keep it away from direct heat as this could distort the material. We will want to check your mouth, night guard every so often, to make sure it is not torn, is still fitting correctly and is providing maximum protection.
