Edmonton Custom Mouth & Night Guards
Custom mouth guards are dental appliances that help protect patients’ teeth from damage caused by grinding and clenching and playing high-impact sports. Our dental professionals take impressions of your teeth and aim to create a mouth guard with a comfortable fit, helping reduce movement and promote better breathing when worn.
If you need custom mouth guards in Edmonton, come to Dental Choice. Our dental professionals strive to improve our patients’ dental health by providing this type of teeth protection.
Why Get Custom Mouth Guards?
While buying over-the-counter mouth guards may be quicker and more convenient, these products often fail to provide the same level of protection as custom appliances. Over-the-counter guards are usually made of a thinner, more pliable plastic and are generally one-size-fits-all. Since the shape of people’s mouths and teeth are different, these guards tend not to fit precisely and can interfere with breathing.
In contrast, custom mouth guards are usually made with high-quality material fitted to your teeth, jaw and mouth, making them comfortable and easy to wear. Since they fit well, custom mouth guards are easier to breathe around, even when engaging in strenuous activity. You may be a candidate for custom dental mouth guards in Edmonton if you have an issue with teeth grinding or play high-impact sports.
How Do Custom Mouth Guards Help With Bruxism?
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a condition that occurs when you grind or clench your teeth when awake or asleep. Custom mouth guards work by creating a barrier between your upper and lower teeth, preventing them from grinding together and eroding tooth enamel. These appliances can also assist with other effects of this condition, such as teeth cracking or chipping.
The custom fit helps these guards stay in place, especially when worn during sleep. When you need a mouth guard for teeth grinding in Edmonton, our dental professionals can help you get the best possible fit to prevent teeth damage associated with this condition.
Why Athletes Need Custom Sports Mouth Guards
Wearing protective gear is a necessity when playing sports. Whether you are competing in ice hockey or boxing, wearing mouth guards can be beneficial in protecting the mouth, teeth and jaw from injuries. Getting a custom fit is essential to receive the level of protection you need when an object hits your teeth or they are exposed to high pressure. Here are a few ways getting custom sports mouth guards in Edmonton can help when you play high-impact sports:
- Cushioning the teeth and preventing tooth fractures and dislocations
- Absorbing and distributing the shock vibrations that cause injury
- Preventing cuts and bruises from the impact
- Protecting lower jaw from injury
- Allowing the guards to stay in place during a game
