There are several types of mouthguards we offer in our Annapolis dental office. Night guards help prevent tooth grinding. Snore guards improve snoring and sleep apnea. The most popular mouthguards we make are for contact sports.
Custom Sports Mouthguards
For many sports, mouthguards are mandatory. They are designed to protect the teeth in the event of a collision or other traumatic force. Over the counter mouthguards are often sufficient, but they aren’t always comfortable. A mouthguard that isn’t comfortable, not worn properly, or not worn at all is ineffective.
A custom mouthguard is made to fit specifically over your teeth and gums.
Benefits of Custom Mouthguard
- A comfortable fit: they are made from impressions of your teeth
- Maximum available protection: the secure fit ensures the best possible protection of teeth and gums and may reduce the forces of impact that can cause a concussion
- Better compliance: with the ability to drink fluids while wearing it, users are more likely to keep a comfortable mouthguard in place
- Oral appliance protection: a custom fit mouthguard can be made to accommodate braces and other oral appliances to avoid breakage and damage to the gums
Fitting for a custom mouthguard is quick, painless and can be completed during a routine preventive care visit to our Arnold dentist office. Once complete, we will contact you for pick up.
